Ingredients

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Skinless chicken breast

540 g, (buy 600g), fat trimmed

Chicken stock cube

1 individual, dissolved in 300ml boiling water

Lemon juice

2 tbs

Spring onion(s)

5 individual, peeled, halved

Baby corn

125 g

Green beans

200 g, (preferably baby), trimmed

Carrot(s)

2 medium, trimmed, cut into strips

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 tbs, chopped

Fresh thyme

2 tsp

Instructions

  1. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil. Place over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until browned.
  2. Add stock, lemon juice, spring onions, baby corn, green beans, carrots, chopped parsley and thyme.
  3. Simmer, partially covered, for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer chicken and vegetables onto serving plates. Increase heat to high and allow liquid to reduce a little. Pour sauce over chicken and serve garnished with extra thyme leaves and lemon wedges.

Notes

Use free-range, corn-fed or organic chicken breasts, if budget allows. You will really notice the difference in taste and texture.
