This is an easy way for a flavoursome chicken and veg dinner that's healthy, with skinless chicken breast, but not dried out or with the chicken breaking up.

Frozen veggies can also be added to the sauce at step 7, peas, beans and corn. Sliced olives can also go in the sauce.

It's also delicious on a bed of mashed potato, make it first and keep warm in a Thermo Server bowl

    Really tasty and fresh. Love how many vegetables are in it. I would chop some carrot and zucchini and put with the pumpkin. Is like a stew so would be good served with pasta, rice, mashed potato or crusty bread. We had chilli in it which gave it a good kick!
