Ingredients

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthways
  • 4 rashers of bacon
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 200g x spinach leaves
  • 220g x green beans
  • 220g x tenderstem broccoli

      Cooking Directions

      1. Preheat oven to 200c
      2. Meanwhile combine the chicken, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
      3. Wrap 1 slice of bacon around each piece of chicken and place on a baking sheet. Cook in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
      4. Meanwhile over a medium heat, heat some water in a large pan until at a simmer. Add the tender stem broccoli and green beans to the water and cook at a simmer for approx 3-4 minutes.  Do not over cook - they should still be firm to the touch. Add the spinach leaves to the water for the last minute of cooking time. 
      5. Share the vegetables and chicken between 2 plates and serve.
