Baby potato

400 g, (chat), halved

Olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Lightly spray a baking tray with oil. Arrange potato, in a single layer, on prepared tray. Lightly spray with oil. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a deep non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 2–3 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate. Add leek to pan and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  3. Add wine and bring to the boil. Cook for 2 minutes or until slightly reduced. Add stock, cream and chicken. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over high heat. Add spinach and cook for 2 minutes or until wilted. Serve chicken with sauce, potatoes and spinach.

Notes

TIP: Wash spinach before chopping and leave a little water clinging to the leaves to help the cooking process.
