Did you know that:

• An 80g serving of raw mushrooms has just 0.4g fat and counts as one of the UK Government’s recommended ‘5-a-day’ quota

• Mushrooms are a source of B- vitamins and minerals and a good way of adding taste to a simple dish

• Mushrooms naturally contain folate or ‘folic acid’ and are a rich source of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5)

• The Mushroom Bureau is responsible for the generic publicity of all fresh cultivated mushrooms sold in Britain. The Bureau is funded voluntarily by its members who are predominantly mushroom growers and trade alliances to the industry in the UK, Ireland and continental Europe.

Wonderful recipe this! Use high quality chicken, and brown it mildly in the pan before proceeding. Don't skimp on the potatoes. Add some colour - I used sugar snap peas. Enjoy!
