For the stuffing balls

- Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas 6.
- Cook the potatoes in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 8-10 minutes, then drain and return to the pan, shaking it to roughen up the edges. Put the potatoes in a roasting tin, spray with low calorie cooking spray and toss to coat well. Roast for 40 minutes or until brown and crispy.

- Sprinkle the mixed herbs over the chicken, spray with low calorie cooking spray and roast with the stuffing balls for the last 25 minutes of cooking.
- Cook all the vegetables in boiling water for 6-8 minutes or until tender, or steam for even fresher tasting veg.
- Make up the gravy according to the packet instructions.
- Slice the chicken breasts thickly and put on to plates with the stuffing balls and vegetables. Pour over the gravy and serve hot.
