Shopping list for 2 people

150g basmati rice

280g diced chicken

25g panko breadcrumbs

1 small punnet sliced mushrooms

150g crème fraiche

1 sachet chicken stock powder

1 leek

15g grated hard Italian cheese

1.5tbsp olive oil


1. Cook the rice

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, with ¼ tsp of salt. When boiling, add the rice and cook for 10-12 minutes. Drain in a sieve.

2. Cook the chicken

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large (preferably ovenproof) frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-5 minutes until golden on the outside. Stir occasionally.

3. Prep

While the chicken cooks, trim the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Halve lengthways then thinly slice. Pop the cheese and breadcrumbs in a bowl, add the oil and stir well.

4. Cook the veg

Preheat your grill to high. Once the chicken is browned, add the leek and sliced mushrooms
to the pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the mushrooms have browned and the leek has softened. Stir occasionally.

5. Grill

Once the veggies are soft and the chicken is cooked, stir in the creme fraiche and chicken stock powder. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle. Bring to the boil and simmer for a minute. Taste and add salt and pepper if you feel it needs it. If your pan isn’t ovenproof, pop the mixture into an ovenproof dish now. Sprinkle over the cheesy breadcrumbs and then grill for 2-3 minutes until golden.

6. Finish and serve

Fluff up the rice with a fork. Serve in bowls with the chicken crumble on top. Enjoy!
