- Calories: 357
- 2 Carrot
- 1 Zucchini
- 1 Garlic Clove
- 200 Grams of Mushrooms
- 2 Chicken Breast
- 100 Grams of Mushroom Chicken Cream
- 0.5 Tablespoons of Cornflour
- 0.25 Cups of Parmesan Cheese
- 1 75 Gram Pack of Baby Spinach
Prepare Ingredients:Preheat oven to 200°C. Wash the fresh produce. Cut the carrots and zucchini into 8 cm long, 1½ cm wide sticks, making sure they are even in thickness. Peel and mince the garlic. Cut mushrooms into 2 mm slices.
Make Carrot & Zucchini Fries:Place the carrot and zucchini on a lined baking tray (you may need to spread over 2 trays). Season lightly with salt, pepper, 1 Tablespoon parmesan and drizzle with olive oil. Roast, about 20 to 25 minutes, or until tender and browned. Remove from the oven and set aside as you finish cooking.
Cook Chicken:While still in the vacuum pack, firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet (or rolling pin) to a thickness of 1½ cm. Remove and pat dry chicken with paper towel. Heat oil in a large pan on medium heat. Cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side or until browned and cooked until no longer pink in the centre. Remove chicken and set aside on a plate, covering with foil to keep warm.
Cook Mushrooms:Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 3-4 minutes until tender. Remove and set aside mushrooms.
Prepare Sauce:In the same pan, add the mushroom chicken cream, garlic, parmesan, cornflour and ½ cup of water. Slowly mix into the pan until well combined and the lumps are removed. Simmer, for about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently until thickened, scraping up any bits left at the bottom of the pan. Taste and season with salt and pepper if required.
You Plate It:Add a few handfuls of spinach and let simmer until it starts to thicken and the spinach wilts. Add the mushrooms to the sauce. Divide the vegetables and chicken with the sauce between plates. Enjoy!
