  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 long shallots, thinly sliced
  • 200g chestnut mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 450g skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1½ tbsp cornflour
  • 150ml chicken stock
  • 1½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • 80g baby spinach
  • 150g natural yogurt
  • 1 lemon, juiced to make 1 tsp
  • 600g cooked brown rice
  • 320g steamed green beans
  • ½ a small bunch flat-leaf parsley, chopped


  • STEP 1

    Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Cook the shallots for 10 minutes until softened, reducing the heat and adding a splash of water if they start to catch.

  • STEP 2

    Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes until softened and starting to turn golden. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute, season well and then scrape everything into a bowl.

  • STEP 3

    Put the chicken in a large bowl and season. Sprinkle over the cornflour and toss to coat. Wipe the frying pan clean and add the remaining oil. Fry the chicken for 3-4 minutes or until golden.

  • STEP 4

    Add the stock and mustard, along with the mushroom mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, and then stir in the spinach, cooking until just wilted. Add the yogurt and bring to a gentle bubble – don’t simmer for too long or it may split. Stir in the lemon juice and season to taste. Serve with brown rice, green beans, the parsley and a final sprinkle of black pepper.
