The Body Coach fuels us with another of his Lean in 15 recipes taken from the new Sustain Plan book
Lean in 15 creator, Instagram star and personal trainer Joe Wicks has been revolutionising how we eat and train with his workouts and bestselling books, the latest of which, Lean in 15: The Sustain Plan is already topping the charts on Amazon.
We brought you his delicious, quick and nutritious overnight oats recipe when the book launched and you've no doubt perfected his protein pancakes in between HIIT workouts, but now we have a new recipe from Joe himself to celebrate the new book. We reckon you deserve it after all those burpees...
Chicken with hash browns
If you’ve ever eaten breakfast in an American diner, you’ll know they often have their own version of sautéed potatoes. This is the Body Coach version and I’m sure you’ll be coming back for more.
1 large potato
1⁄2 tbsp coconut oil
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely sliced 3 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 x 180g skinless chicken
breast fillet, sliced into 1cm strips 2 eggs 2 tsp rose harissa 2 large handfuls of spinach
Put a saucepan of water on to boil.
Grate the potato, skin and all. Give the grated flesh a good squeeze over the sink to remove some of the liquid.
Melt half of the coconut oil in a small non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat and drop in the grated potato. Use the back of a spatula to flatten it out across the base of the pan. Fry the potato for about 5 minutes on each side, reducing the heat a little if you think the potato is burning.
Meanwhile, melt the remaining coconut oil in a second frying pan and chuck in the spring onions, chilli, tomatoes and chicken and stir-fry for 4–5 minutes, or until you are happy the chicken is fully cooked. Check by slicing into one of the larger pieces to make sure the meat is white all the way through, with no raw pink bits left.
Carefully crack the eggs into the hot water to poach, reducing the heat until the water is just ‘burping’. Cook the eggs for about 4 minutes for a runny yolk, then lift out carefully with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen roll.
When you are happy the meat is cooked through, add the harissa and spinach to the frying pan and toss together with the other ingredients until fully wilted.
Slide the hash brown onto a piece of kitchen roll and dab it to remove any excess oil, then plate it up. Top with the chicken and spinach mix and finish with the poached eggs and a pinch of black pepper.
