  1. Heat half the oil in a deep non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 2–3 minutes each side or until browned. Transfer to a plate.

Add garlic and carrots and cook, tossing occasionally, for 2–3 minutes or until carrots are golden. Add wine and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes or until wine is reduced by half.
  3. Add stock and thyme and bring to the boil. Add chicken and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Add asparagus and peas and simmer, uncovered, for 2–3 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, vegetables are tender and sauce has reduced. Serve sprinkled with mint.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Chargrilled wholegrain bread. TIP: If you can’t find small chicken breast fillets, cut two 250g breast fillets in half diagonally to give you four small fillets.
