A wonderful nutritious mix of lovely foods and very pretty whatever time of year it is.

Ingredients

  • 2 high welfare chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • teacup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • handful of fresh spinach leaves

Instructions

Gently fry the chicken breasts in the oil for about 15 mins or until cooked through, letting them colour nicely on both sides.

Season with salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes, stir and let them soften, it only takes a few mins.

Lower the heat, add the pesto, crème fraîche and spinach leaves, giving it a good stir until it turns all saucy!

Serve by finishing with basil and the Parmesan if using, along with a colourful salad or mixed green veggies.

Nutrition Info

Chicken

Chicken is one of the best sources of vitamin B3, otherwise known as niacin. Niacin is vitally important for energy production, changing protein, fat and carbohydrate into usable energy. In particular niacin helps convert starches, stored in the liver and muscles, into energy. It also plays an antioxidant role, helping to stop damaging free radicals from doing their nasty cell-destroying deeds.

Good honest nutrition

The chicken came first. Now, can we please move on?
