This week, on the blog, we have a really tasty, really healthy recipe by Alchemy founder Domini Kemp. And guess what? It's also nice and simple to make! Perfect for the family this weekend or if you're entertaining!


  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, sliced into half-inch strips
  • 1 tbsp five-spice powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 400g broccoli stems
  • 200ml water
  • 2 tbsp cashews
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  1. Start by marinating the chicken in the five-spice, sliced garlic and tamari about half an hour before you are ready to serve.
  2. When you’re ready to cook, heat the coconut oil in a frying pan and fry the chicken until it’s coloured a little – about three minutes – before adding the  broccoli stems and the 200ml of water.
  3. Cover tightly with a lid, turn the heat down to medium, and steam cook for about five minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the stems are al dente.
  4. Remove the lid and check the seasoning (it shouldn't need salt) before adding the nuts and sesame seeds, tossing the whole together and serving on a bed of ‘rice’ like wild rice or cauliflower rice.
