Here’s a Chinese takeaway favourite that the whole family can enjoy at home. The twist? My recipe is both healthy and super tasty! With succulent chicken and a special sweet ‘n’ sour sauce, it’s so tasty children are bound to lap up all the veggies too. Clean plates all round.


  • 75 g/3 oz butternut squash, peeled and diced
  • 100 g/


Steam the diced butternut squash in a steamer for 5 minutes, then add the broccoli and baby corn and steam for a further 4 minutes until the vegetables are tender.

Beat the egg yolk, milk and cornflour together in a bowl. Add the diced chicken, lightly season with salt and pepper and stir to coat the chicken in the batter.

Combine the sweet and sour sauce ingredients in a bowl.<
