From Chicken – the best ever recipe collection
Serves 4

1 tablespoon olive oil
4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless, cut into chunks
1 leek, finely sliced into rings
2 ounces butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon coarse grain mustard
1 carrot, very finely diced
3 cups white mushrooms
2 lbs potatoes, finely sliced
salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350°F Heat the oil in a large pan. Fry the chicken for 5 mins or until browned.

Add the leek and fry for a further 5 minutes.

Add half the butter to the pan and allow it to melt. Sprinkle the flour over and stir in the milk.

Cook over a low heat until thickened then stir in the mustard.

Add the diced carrot with the mushrooms and season to taste.

Line the base of a 3 pint / 7 1/2 cup ovenproof dish with potato slices. Spoon one third of the chicken mixture over. Cover with another layer of potatoes.

Repeat layering, finishing with a layer of potatoes. Dot with the remaining butter.

Bake in the oven for 1 1/2 hours, covering with foil after 30 mins cooking time.

Serve hot.

To be honest, I thought the original recipe was too bland for a chicken bake (the third photograph). So with the leftover serving, I added cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese and reheated it in a toaster oven for 15 minutes; the end product is the first photograph.

Also, I forgot to get mushrooms for this dish and so I just added the leftover savoy cabbage from the duck.
