Poached Chicken Broth with Spring Greens

Pinch of Salt is now back! After a hiatus due to the fact that I ran out of space on the free version of WordPress and then the exchange rate rocketed up to over R16 to the dollar, things have not been posted. But now I am back with lots of good food to come!

I got this amazing new cookbook for my birthday, In the Mood for Healthy Mood. It has such delicious recipes, with lots of vegetables! The first thing, I tried out the book was this poached chicken soup.

I am sure there are many people out there, like me, who hate doing the dishes.  So, if you are short on time in the evening there is nothing better than a one-pot dinner.  Especially one that doesn’t require lots of prep, chopping and mixing.  Coconut Milk Poached Chicken is the perfect one-pot dinner.  Full on flavour, quick, easy, healthy and hardly any dishes! How good does that sound?

Chicken and Leek Stroganoff
