  • 1 cooking spray
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts (about 2.2 lbs)
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 6 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 chicken stock cubes
  • 13 1/2 fl. oz water
  • 5 fl. oz white wine
  • 3 1/2 fl. oz low-fat evaporated milk


With cooking spray, lightly spray a deep, non-stick skillet or saucepan. Add chicken; cook for approximately 4 minutes, or until browned. Remove chicken; set aside.

On low heat, cook the leek, spring onion, garlic, and coriander until soft, about 4 minutes. Add the chicken, stock cubes, water and wine; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 30 minutes. Stir the milk through and simmer uncovered until chicken is cooked, about 15 minutes.


Serve with steamed rice or couscous, broccoli and baby carrots.
