Nutritional values

The combination of chicken and vegetables from the wok with pre-cooked wheat is not only interesting from a culinary point of view - it also provides a particularly large portion of B vitamins, magnesium and zinc. All together effectively strengthens muscles, nerves and the immune system.

Experimenting allowed: Instead of chicken filet you can use turkey steak, instead of sugar snap peas you can use frozen peas. And of course brown rice instead of wheat is also a good alternative. Even the Thai basil from the chicken curry, which is not always available, can be replaced by normal basil:
Extra crunch and healthy fats bring roasted nuts, which you can sprinkle over the finished dish
