This went down very well with my boyfriend who likes lowcarb meals full of protein. It was very easy to make, although it did take me longer than the recipe stated. It looked great on the plate with the chinese leaves. For my tastes I found it slightly bland and needed to add more sweet chilli sauce than I would have liked to make it more flavoursome. If anyone can think of additional ingredients to boost the flavour for next time I'd be happy to hear them. I substituted the rice for a 2 minute cook in the packet wholegrain rice with seeds.
