  1. Finely chop the onion and garlic, then add to a hot pan along with the diced chicken breast. Spray with low calorie cooking spray, cook gently until the onions are soft, but not coloured

  2. Turn the heat up and add the rice and stir well. After 2 minutes add add the mushrooms, diced Asparagus stems, 100ml/½ cup of the chicken stock, tin of tomatoes, Oregano, Chilli Flakes and white wine vinegar

  3. Stir until the liquid has cooked into the rice, then turn the heat down to a simmer. Keep adding ladlefuls of stock and stirring, allowing each ladleful to be absorbed before adding the next
