Steamed Cumin Chicken With Mushrooms and Carrots

This tasty, super healthy chicken recipe makes a great evening meal as part of a healthy lifestyle or weight loss program.  Steaming the chicken breast keeps it amazingly moist, and really brings out the chicken flavor. It will take you less than 25 minutes, from starting to prepare the dish to serving it. Anyone can make this dish – no cooking skills required.

Ingredients (per person)

  • 150g skinless chicken breast
  • 2 carrots chopped into chunks
  • 4 chestnut mushrooms (or any other kind you like) sliced
  • 1 lemon (juiced)
  • 1 teaspoon of whole cumin seeds
  • Salt and pepper
  • A handful of cilantro (coriander leaves), roughly chopped


Prepare carrots and mushrooms, and put them in a bowl.  Lay the chicken breast on top. Add the lemon juice, and sprinkle on the cumin seeds and season with salt and pepper. Steam for 20 minutes.  To serve, slice the chicken into pieces, and stir though a the coriander leaves. Adjust the seasoning – if it doesn’t seem to taste of much, add more salt, and perhaps a little extra fresh lemon.
