7 oz tin Plum Tomatoes
 2 tbsp Tomato Puree
½ Pt Chicken Stock
 4 oz Sweetcorn
4 oz Mushrooms (washed and sliced)

Cut the chicken into strips and coat in seasoned flour.  Melt the oil and butter in a frying pan and brown the chicken on all sides.  Remove from the pan and place in a casserole dish.  Fry the onions, garlic and peppers.
