Method

  1. Dust the chicken in the flour and some seasoning. Heat the oil in a lidded pan and brown the chicken, in batches if needed, then transfer to a plate. Throw in the bacon and fry for 5 mins, until crisp.
  2. Return the chicken to the pan. Add the stock, cover and simmer for 30 mins, adding the potatoes after 10 mins, until the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are tender.
  3. Stir in cheese, then the rest of the vegetables and some seasoning. Simmer for 5 mins more, uncovered, then serve.

Yummy! Used medium fat garlic and herb Philadelphia - about half a pot. Will definitely make again.

Have just made for a family tea and was devoured by kids and grandparents. Only changes made was using chicken breasts - cooked whole in stock then sliced to serve & used Boursin instead of cream cheese. Yum!!

Just cooked this and it was absolutely delicious! Very easy to cook and cheap to make. I swapped the thighs for breasts which worked well. I only made this for 2 people so halved everything, using 100g cream cheese which i found the perfect amount - however i used extra light cream cheese so perhaps this reduced the richness of the dish. Will be making it again soon!

Used chunks of chicken breast, and as I had some fennel and french beans languishing in the fridge chucked them in as well. Would def make again but would try with lower fat cheese as it tasted pretty indulgent for a midweek supper!
Adults loved, kids not so much.

Yum! just made this tonight, I only put in 100g of soft goats cheese (i'm allergic to dairy) and it tasted great! Be careful of the seasoning - don't add too much salt as you'll have that in the bacon & stock. Will be making this again!

I think this is a lovely recipe. Agreed, it is rich, but it doesn't leave you feeling uncomfortably 'full'. I didn't think I liked broad beans either, but this dish has changed my opinion of them BIG styley!!!!

Very tasty chicken dish; I couldn't find thighs, so used marylands. I agree with others that it was very rich, and would also use less cream cheese next time. Perfect meal for a summer day, even in 38C heat (I'm in Australia.) I would also use thigh fillets or breast next time as, being boneless, they are easier for the children to eat. A new favourite.

I make this recipe quite often but as we are vegetarian I use quorn fillets instead of chicken and quorn/tesco bacon style slices. I also use very low fat cream cheese. Peas instead of sweetcorn and green beans instead of broad beans.

I'm not one to shy away from rich food but I have to agree with a lot of the other comments - a whole 200g of soft cheese made this really very rich indeed. Quite bizarrely, though, at the same time as being incredibly rich it was really very 'soupy' as well. I guess it would either need a lot more simmering in order to reduce the liquid or just less stock to solve this problem. The combination of flavours and colours were great, though. Will probably make again with some tweakings.

Really enjoyed this next time will use soya beans instead of broad beans, they were way too much hassle

This is lovely, but incredibly rich, even with using 23% reduced fat soft cheese. I didn't think I was a great fan of broad beans (or sweetcorn come to that), but this recipe has changed my mind. You certainly can't eat great piles of it though. Will make again without question.

I made this last night and really enjoyed it. I made sure that I browned the chicken first and didn't find it soggy. I also went for a lighter cream cheese based on what others had said but I'm not sure that the full fat version would be too creamy or rich. I may try that next time or use creme fraiche with French mustard. I may also try doing the potatoes separately either as crispy baked chunks or possibly mashed.
Like others here I did have to add extra stock.

Delicious. I would omit the tomatoes next time as I don't think they go that well, and use carrots instead. Added some parsley and agree with other comments re: reducing the soft cheese; I used a third of a pack.

Just made this for our dinner. Wasnt a hit with our 8 year daughter... even though she likes everything in it! I used smoked bacon and that was all I could really taste in the sauce a bit overpowering. Also found it a bit rich so maybe less cheese next time. Got a nice batch of meals for the freezer for my toddler though.

Everyone enjoyed this. I made more to freeze as we enjoyed it so much

Delicious ! Used skinless chicken breasts and cooked the potatoes separately, adding them at the end with the other vegetables.
Perfect with chunks of fresh bread to mop up the yummy sauce.
Will definitely be cooking this again.

This was LOVELY! I also removed the chicken skins and used half fat cream cheese to make it healthier!
