Sliced Chicken with Courgette Mushroom and Leaks

This is a favourite of Ishbel and me and the kids and grand kids and takes about 30 mins.  So anyone who says it takes to long to cook a proper meal or who say they cannot cook, needs to give this a try, simplicity with taste.  It contains 4 of your '5 a day' vegetables and with no effort.

This recipe is for two but as you will see can easily be added to for a larger group feeding.

What you need:
Mashed potatoes:

Take about 4 or 5 large potatoes peel and cut into quarters.  Rinse through a couple of times to get rid of excess starch.

Place on hob, cook, drain and mash, takes about 30 mins.  

As soon as the potatoes are on the hob prepare your Veg:

1 Leak thinly sliced 
6 decent sized mushrooms thinly sliced 
1 large Courgette (Zucchini) sliced into circles and then quartered
cup full of chopped parsley 

Add all of the above to a pan with a large knob of unsalted butter 

and sweat down, you can if you want add a glass of white wine (while sweating off the veg add a large glass of white wine to a pan and reduce to burn off the alcohol on a high heat.  Once the alcohol has been burnt off, add remaining wine to vegetables - this is entirely optional).

Add Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Once sweated down add 1/2 pint of good chicken stock 

Take two decent size boneless chick breasts and slice thinly across.

Add chicken to vegetables stir and put  lid on pan on a low heat cook until the potatoes are cooked and mashed.

Serve up the mash add the chicken and vegetables garnish with a couple of sprigs of parsley and enjoy!

Cooks Tip:  If you have a resting plate for your spoon use it, it avoids burning said item on the hob!!


  1. Oh yum. You've done it again! Made me hungry! I actually cooked coq au vin for my daughter. It was quite good but when it comes to meats I'm not Julia Child.

  2. Hi Julia, easy peasy this one, get hubby to do it! Had no idea who Julia Child was. Just spent 15 minutes reading all about her, fascinating lady

  3. I love simplicity. I also love drinking wine while I cook...hee hee! This looks so good and easy...gonna try it tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe!


  4. Penelope, thanks for stopping by. My recipes are always simple to make but according to my better half, kids and grand kids, always delicious, so that's enough for me, hope you you enjoy....
