INGREDIENTS

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts,
(each cut in half lengthways)

3 handfuls fresh spinach leaves
1 handful fresh basil, chopped

METHOD

1. Start by seasoning the chicken with LoSalt and black pepper on both sides. 
2. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and sear the seasoned chicken on both sides for 5-6 mins to gain colour. Then remove the chicken and set aside. 
3. Next add the sliced onion and minced garlic to the same pan. Saute for 4-5 mins. Next add the sliced mushrooms, chopped sundried tomatoes, spinach and basil. 
4. Now add the low salt chicken stock and cook for 4-6 minutes until the spinach is wilted. 
5. Next turn the heat down a little and add the crème fraish and mix well.
6. Pop the cooked chicken back into the sauce and simmer away for 4-5 mins until everything is piping hot and the sauce has reduced a little. 
7. Serve hot with extra veggies!
