Two stand out elements of this Dinner. The delicious, crunchy and sweet mini Sweet Potato roasties with rosemary and thyme, followed by the creamy sumptuous chicken and mushroom sauce. Tenderstem Broccoli has a more delicate and balanced taste in comparison to regular Broccoli. Delivers a good hit of protein, healthy lower GI carbs, and a surprisingly low fat content given the flavours. If you would prefer a smaller plate, half the chicken and sauce, and reduce the sweet potato to 200 g and save 390 calories.

Chicken offers great sources of healthy lean protein, whilst Sweet Potato offers a nice hit of vitamin A, C, Copper, K & B6, plus has a lower blood sugar response than white potato. Then you have the indigestible fibre and prebiotic benefits for your guts microbiome (i.e. feeding the beneficial bacteria), that come with mushrooms, garlic and broccoli. Broccoli also brings a good hit of vitamin K, vitamin C, folate (folic acid) and potassium.
