Thanks to Charlie's for the always fresh & delicious fruit & veg!

Ingredients (serves 6)
olive oil spray
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
600g chicken breast, diced
1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
400g sweet potato, peeled and diced
2 large carrots, peeled and diced
250g green beans, chopped

Spray a large saucepan or wok with oil over medium heat.  Add onion, garlic and ginger, and cook for about 5 minutes, until softened.

Add chicken and cook until lightly browned.

Add the honey and mustards, and stir well, cooking for about a minute.  Add stock, along with sweet potato and carrot.  Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Add beans and cook for a further 5 minutes, until sauce has thickened and sweet potato is tender.

Serve as is or with brown rice or cous cous.
