Killer combo – Honey and Ginger Chicken. Slight spice with sweetness over a succulent chicken breast. This is a relatively low calorie dinner considering the volume on the plate, which is largely due to their being very little fat served up in this dish. The buttery crushed New Potatoes are delicious, and when combined with the more delicate sweetheart cabbage and carrot batons you really do feel healthy yet fulfilled. For a smaller plate option, drop to 1 Chicken Breast, 1 teaspoon of honey and 180g of New Potatoes and save 265 calories.
