Healthy chicken fillet recipes

Whenever we think “healthy protein,” a chicken fillet is the first ingredient that comes to mind. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut, though, and forget how versatile this piece of meat really is!

Toss it in a delicious salad, like our spicy Moroccan harissa chicken salad, chicken, feta and roast sweet potato salad (pictured above), Thai chicken salad cups, or these flavour-packed Buffalo chicken quinoa bowls.

You can also pair it with some much-needed carbs, like lemon chicken with simple Greek salad, or the healthy classic chicken fajitas.

If you’re in the mood for something a bit more hearty and warming — because, let’s face it, no-one wants a salad when it’s lashing outside — you can always try our healthy chicken tikka masala, lemon and honey chicken stir-fry or Thai green chicken curry.

More tips and recipes to help you eat well

  • Snack regularly to keep yourself from overeating later on, and try to include some kind of protein with every snack — it’ll keep you fuller for longer. These frittata bites, monster bites (which your child will love!), cheesy quinoa vegetable bites, and better-for-you banana buns are perfect snacks to keep you going until dinner.
  • Try to get your 5-7 veggies and fruit portions every day. Especially in times like these where we need to keep our bodies as strong and healthy as possible, a quick banana in the morning before you start your day or munching on a carrot while you’re working from home is an easy way to make sure you keep your snacks as nutritious as possible.
  • Don’t skip breakfast. With many people working from home, it’s easy to start your day and only realise at lunchtime that you haven’t had anything to eat. Remember that a car can’t drive without fuel, so start your day with a full tank. These smoked salmon toasts with avocado or poached eggs with tomato and mushroom are a tasty, healthy way to start a busy day, filled with all the nutrients you need: protein, carbs and healthy fats.
  • Drink water. Keeping your body hydrated will ensure keep you in tip top shape and flush out all the things your body doesn’t need right now.
