Free Healthy Recipe - Lemon Chicken & Power Food Salad

I like to serve these together, but the chicken and salad both work as snacks on their own.

Recipe from 'Blood Sugar: The Family' by Michael Moore.
Published by New Holland Press.

Ingredients
2 tbsp agave syrup
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 lemon juice and grated zest
80 grams brown rice, cooked
80 grams cannellini beans, cooked
2 spring onions finely sliced
60 grams tofu, fried, diced
2 tbsp beans - broad, cooked
Method

1. In a small bowl mix together the agave nectar with the hoisin sauce and the lemon juice and zest. Place drumsticks in a large dish and brush with the mixture. Leave to marinate in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.

2. Preheat a grill pan or barbecue and grill the drumsticks until cooked through and caramelised on the skin. Keep brushing this on as they cook. For a nice barbecue flavour, I even let the skin almost burn.

3. In a small bowl combine the salad vegetables and gently mix. Season with sea salt and pepper.

4. Mix the dressing ingredients into a small jar and shake well.

5. Serve the salad on the side with the hot sticky chicken and some lemon wedges.
