A Cheeky Postworkout Nandos (Homemade)

Everyone likes a “Cheeky Nandos” right? So what better meal to make after a morning workout on a Sunday than this? Bringing Nandos to home and in a healthy way.

FACT: What is the best thing to eat to aid muscle healing? PROTEIN!

FACT: Quinoa is the easiest protein to digest as well so this will benefit your digestive system whether you eat this on a day of fitness or not 🙂



  • 1 Chicken Breast
  • 3 Broccoli Stems
  • 1-2 Carrots
  • 1-2 Cups of Quinoa
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Pinch of chopped Spring Onion
  • Nandos Hot Peri Peri Sauce
  • Olive Oil
  • Rapeseed Oil
  1. 12 Hours before the meal is to be cooked, marinade the chicken in the Nandos sauce and keep it stored in your fridge (covered).
  2. 12 Hours Later.
  3. Pre-heat your pan to a high gas mark with a little olive oil.
  4. Place your chicken breast into the centre of the pan and leave to cook on a medium heat for around 30-40 minutes. Depending on the size or thickness of your chicken the time could differ. Just make sure all the chicken is no longer pink.
  5. Within that time you will want to prepare the rest of your meal. So next thing to do is to get a large pan to boil the vegetables.
  6. Fill the pan with half the size of water and wait to boil at a medium to high temperature.
  7. Add the broccoli and quinoa in the water. (If you wanted the carrots to be boiled, I would add them in after skinning and chopping them at this moment too).
  8. After 4 minutes – add in the kale.
  9. When another 2-3 minutes has passed, using a sieve drain the water from the vegetables and place them all on the plate as desired.
  10. If you have not already done so, peel the carrots and chop them followed by putting them with the rest of the vegetables.
  11. Sprinkle a little sea salt, black pepper, rapeseed oil and spring onion over the vegetables.
  12. When the chicken is tender and ready to be served, take it out of the pan and place it on the serving dish with the rest of the mix.
  13. Enjoy!
