Braised Chicken & Sweet Corn in Pumpkin Sauce, with Rice
Carmela Lee, Registered Dietitian (UK); Education Sub-committee of Hong Kong Nutritional Association, said "It's clever to make gravy with pumpkin for a rich and delicious dish, because of the reduced fat and salt content. Pumpkin is not only tasty, but also nutritious, especially for its antioxidant nature arising from carotene and vitamin A. Antioxidants help prevent cancer and protect the heart and blood vessels."
