High-Protein Chicken Recipe With Ginger, Egg And Asparagus

People are cooking more at home during the coronavirus crisis, and while it’s tempting to eat junk from the sofa, it’s important to eat well during self-isolation. This super simple (and super tasty!) high-protein chicken recipe is a must-try.

Take a break from loading up on all those carbs like rice and pasta that you have stocked up and refuel with some goodness. With most shops still open and ingredients readily available, we wanted to create something light and protein rich.

As always, our recipes feature only seven ingredients, are incredibly simple to make and can be cooked by people at any standard – no professional chef skills needed.


  • Chicken fillets
  • Asparagus
  • Eggs
  • Red Chilli
  • Ginger
  • Onions
  • Coriander

Dice the chicken into small pieces.

Add the chicken to a piping hot frying pan with a splash of oil. Season it with salt and pepper to taste.

Move the chicken around in the pan until it starts to brown. With the chicken in such small pieces, it will cook in less than two minutes.

Add in the ginger and chilli. At this stage you will want to move fast, with the temperatures high!

Quickly add the thinly sliced white onions. Again, toss everything around using a spatular or flicking the pan. The protein rich chicken recipe is now seriously starting to take shape.

The chopped asparagus will take less than a minute to soften, so add it last. You want to keep the nutrients and colour in the vegetable.

Finish the dish with a large sprinkling of coriander. There is no need to chop it, simply remove the stems and toss over the chicken.

Remove the chicken and veggies from the heat and spoon onto your serving dish. Quickly rinse out the frying pan and get ready to add that last big blast of protein: the eggs.

Fry over a high heat with a small amount of oil. You could go for a poached egg for extra healthiness, but the fried eggs finish the dish wonderfully.

Pop the eggs on top of the fried chicken and let that lovely yolk ooze down into the tasty protein packed dish.

A super simple and quick way to cook something healthy and lean during the coronavirus, and not rely too much on carbs.
