If you can, use organic ingredients for this recipe. Although we are unsure whether eating organic food reduces the risk of breast cancer, organic food contains less pesticide residue. We know that certain pesticides are linked to breast cancer risk, so we recommend eating organic food whenever possible. Read more on pesticides here.
2 organic chicken thighs, without skin and bones
1 lemon cut into wedges with pips removed
1 red onion, cut into wedges
120g pitted olives of your preferred choice – large Greek olives work well
1 red chilli, seeds removed and chopped
150 g broccoli
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Note: Can be made as a vegetarian or vegan version – substitute chicken thighs for Portobello mushrooms and reduce roasting time to 20 minutes or until mushrooms are soft and cooked through.
Chicken or mushrooms are a healthy source of protein. Protein is an important part of a balanced diet and key to building and maintaining all types of body tissue, including muscle.
Broccoli and onions are non-starchy vegetables. There is strong evidence that a diet rich in vegetables and fruits can help reduce breast cancer risk, and that non-starchy vegetables may also decrease the risk of oestrogen-receptor-negative breast cancer.
