Mustard & Coriander Stuffed Chicken Breasts on a Bed of Mushroom & Green Beans

This fun little paleo recipe came about after one of those “what do I have in my refrigerator?” moments. I had some coriander leftover from the fragrant prawn and coriander curry which you can find here. The only thing you need to check is that you buy a whole grain mustard without added sugar or nasty ingredients. This recipe is super easy to make, so it’s great for midweek dinners.
