Stir-fried Chicken with Spinach, Tomatoes and Pine Nuts


1 Red onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon Freshly grated nutmeg
2 tablespoon Sunflower oil
2 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
50 g/2 oz Raisins
50 g/2 oz Pine nuts
225 g/8 oz Baby spinach, washed
450 g/1 lb Cherry tomatoes, halved
450 g/1 lb Skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets, cut into strips
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Freshly cooked ribbon noodles tossed in butter, to serve


Heat the wok and add the pine nuts. Dry-fry for about 2 minutes, shaking often to ensure that they toast but do not burn. Remote and reserve. Wipe any dust from the wok.

Heat the wok again, add the oil and when hot, add the red onion and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Reduce the heat, toss in the cherry tomatoes and stir-fry gently until the tomatoes start to disintegrate.

Add the baby spinach and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until they start to wilt. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then sprinkle in the grated nutmeg and drizzle in the balsamic vinegar. Finally, stir in the raisins and reserved toasted pine nuts. Serve immediately on a bed of buttered ribbon noodles.
