Ingredients

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

Method

  • 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.
