Soak rice noodles (50g) in boiling water for 10 mins - separate using fork whilst soaking.
Warm vegetable oil (1 teaspoon) on a medium-high heat in frying pan or wok, add chicken strips (150g/1 medium chicken breast, sliced into thin strips) and cook for 2-5 mins, turning once to colour lightly on all sides.
Add garlic (1 clove garlic) optional chilli, (1/4 teaspoon dried/fresh), broccoli (70g ) and carrots (80g) - cook for further 5 mins, stirring occasionally - you may want to reduce the heat.
Add soy sauce (1 tablespoon), sesame oil (1 tablespoon) and drained rice noodles. Mix thoroughly, ensure chicken is cooked through and cook for further 1 - 2 mins if needed. Vegetables should be soft with a slight bite.
Place all ingredients into the blender and blend with 280ml water.
This recipe was blended with 280ml water to achieve a pancake batter consistency which yielded 600ml total blend (10 x 60ml syringes), however, you may find you need slightly less fluid to blend as you become confident administering blends. Always sieve blends until you are confident you are achieving a completely smooth blend with no bits.
Once blended, this meal can be frozen and used within one month. Defrost thoroughly and bring to room temperature before use. Water may need to be added to reach a pancake batter consistency. Consume with 24hrs of defrosting.
