1 tablespoon of olive oil
4 small skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets (about 5 oz each)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2.1 oz of drained and roughly chopped semi-dried tomatoes
7 oz of thinly sliced mushrooms
1 can (12 fl oz) of creamy evaporated milk
2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard
3.5 oz of baby spinach leaves
1.3 lb of baby chat potatoes, boiled or steamed, to serve


  1. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in the same pan. Add garlic, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and lightly browned.
  3. Stir in evaporated milk and mustard. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let it gently boil for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until thickened.
  4. Add spinach and stir over heat until wilted.
  5. Return the chicken to the pan with any juices from the plate. Turn chicken to coat with the sauce. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until hot.
  6. Serve with boiled baby potatoes.
