This is a delicious alternative to frying, roasting or baking chicken. I like to steam the meat because it keeps it moist, but also the seasoning stays fresh and the chicken stays well flavoured. Steaming is also a healthier alternative to other cooking methods.



Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 1 serving

Ingredients
1 chicken leg
2 satsuma/1 orange
6 fresh mint leaves
5 thyme sprigs
Half tsp black pepper
Splash olive oil

Required seasoning


Method
Place the chicken in a sieve on top of a saucepan of boiling water and boil for 15 minutes.



Slice the satsumas/orange in half.



I ate the segments, but if you'd like to keep the oranges in tact feel free. Add to the saucepan of chicken along with all the seasoning.



Cover the saucepan with a lid on turn to a simmer for 30 minutes.

Remove the lid, and the meat should be cooked through completely, the oranges slightly softened, and the mint wilted.



Serve alongside roasted tomatoes and wilted spinach for a healthy dinner.



Chicken, dinner
