This is a really tasty mid week supper or lunch dish, the combination of orange with wholegrain mustard really works! It’s also pretty low calorie!

3 large or 6 small chicken breasts, cut small

Handful of broccoli florets

Handful of green beans cut in half

Juice of 1 large or 2 small oranges

2 tbsps wholegrain mustard

2 tsps veg stock powder (Bouillon)


  1. Put the pasta on to boil for 10-15 mins until al dente
  2. Fry the onion in olive oil until soft and then add in the chicken pieces, continue cooking until the chicken loses its’ pink centre
  3. Add in the broccoli and beans, cook for 5 mins, meanwhile mix the orange juice, mustard and Bouillon with about half a cup of hot water then add to the pan.
  4. Drain the pasta and add to the chicken, stir to cover with sauce, adjust the seasoning if necessary and serve
