Cook-a-long @ Home with Candice 


Here at Simplyhealth we know how important nutrition is as part of a healthy lifestyle. We also know time and inspiration can hinder our food choices. That’s why Candice Brown, winner of The Great British Bake Off 2016, is here to help us rustle up a delicious and healthy meal through an online cook-a-long class.


Our ‘Star Baker’ has come up with a healthy chicken and chorizo egg fried rice recipe for you and your whole family to enjoy.


Join Candice for our cook-a-long over on Simplyhealth UK’s Facebook page.

Here are the ingredients you will need to take part in the cook-a-long, which serves two people:


  • Sesame oil or olive oil
  • 60g chorizo
  • 1 red onion
  • 6 mushrooms
  • 1 red chilli or chilli paste
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 200g tenderstem broccoli
  • Half bag beansprouts
  • 1 pepper (any colour)
  • 4-6 chicken thigh fillets
  • 1 packet ready cooked wholegrain rice (or cooked rice of choice)
  • Handful of mangetout
  • Soy sauce
  • 25g salted peanuts
  • 1 egg


As a meat-free alternative, Candice has suggested replacing the chicken and chorizo with halloumi and/or vegan chicken-style pieces.
