This recipe is a great source of protein and carbohydrates pre-race. It’s my go-to meal the night before. Eat an early dinner and don’t over indulge. This meal plays it safe with no spices to upset your tummy. I don’t use exact measurements so adapt the quantity to suit yourself. Here are the ingredients and method.
4 – 6 x chicken thigh fillets with the fat trimmed off
Heaped tablespoon of Djion mustard
Heaped tablespoon of minced garlic
Olive oil to coat pan
3/4 cup of good quality white wine
Pouring cream to thicken
Large handful of snow peas
Hand full of pine nuts
Pinch of parsley
Salt & white pepper
Boil water and cook pasta. While pasta is cooking coat pan with olive oil. Add garlic, mustard and chicken. Cook chicken then add white wine and simmer until liquid has half evaporated, add cream to thicken and snow peas. Stir until snow peas have just cooked. Season well with salt and pepper then add the pasta and mix through. Serve topped with parmesan cheese, pine nuts and parsley. Put the remaining wine on ice for post race celebrations…hopefully!
