  • 2 chicken breasts halved, coated with panko, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 680 grams mushroom
  • 2 onions diced
  • 227 grams spinach
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp VH yellow curry sauce optional


  • In a shallow bowl or plate, combine the panko crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Coat the chicken breast with the mixture.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a skillet. Fry the chicken until golden on each side, cooked through and no longer pink (about 5-6 minutes each side, depending on the thickness of the chicken. If you don't half yours like I did, you might need a longer cook time). Place aside on a plate.
  • Put the rest of the butter in the pan and add in the onions, mushrooms, garlic, and spinach. 
  • Add in your chicken broth and parmesan cheese and let the mixture simmer. Add in cornstarch to thicken the liquid so it's more of a thick creamy texture. (An alternative is the make a blond roux to mix in but it'll require a small saucepan) 
  • Add in your sun dried tomatoes.
  • Optional: for a little kick, I added some yellow curry sauce into the mix :)
  • Let the sauce to simmer for a further minute until cheese melts through the sauce and add the chicken back into the pan; sprinkle with the fresh herbs for garnish and serve over rice, pasta, quinoa, etc of your choice.
