Pierce potatoes in several places with a fork. Place on the microwave turntable, towards the edge, and cook on full power, turning the potatoes over half way through cooking time.
For different wattage (or category) microwaves, adjust cooking time in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions.
While the potatoes are cooking, heat oil in a pan, add the chicken and garlic and cook until browned all over - about 5-6 minutes. Add the pesto and stir through, followed by the tomatoes and spinach.
Remove potatoes from oven carefully and stand for 1 minute. Cut potatoes in half and pile the chicken mixture on top. Serve with extra salad leaves.
2 large Rooster potatoes
1tsp olive oil
2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
1 clove garlic, crushed
