Method

  1. Put the kettle on. Fry the thighs in the oil in a casserole or wide pan with a lid to quickly brown. Stir in the whites of the spring onion with the flour and stock cubes until the flour disappears, then gradually stir in 750ml hot water from the kettle. Throw in the carrots and potatoes, bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 20 mins.
  2. Take off the lid and simmer for 15 mins more, then throw in the peas for another 5 mins. Season, stir in the mustard, green spring onion bits, herbs and some seasoning.

This cooked really well and turned out lovely. Tasty and colourful. I used a mixture of chicken thighs and drumsticks. You don't need any more flour. The consistency is perfect.

My family loved this one. I used chicken fillets instead and added a few leeks that were lying around and more flour so it was a bit thicker. Thyme was the herb choice. Lovely.

I plan to make this recipe but just wonderers if it would be better with a tablespoon or 2 more flour to make it a bit thicker and more gravy like?

Very good recipe. I would recommend flouring the chicken in a platic bag with some spices (paprika) then frying in a very hot pan to brown (and crisp). Drain excess oil on kitchen paper.

After this frying finely chopped bacon in the same pan and until crispy and drain on kitchen paper.

Then chuck it all in as per the recipe! Lovely.

Very lovely flavour! However, the sauce wasn't quite thick enough for my taste. It is easy to make though and fairly quick. Good amount of veg. Would recommend with ciabatta or some other nice bread that can mop up the sauce.

Exceptionally tasty for such a speedy one pot meal. Tastes as if you've carefully prepared it hours in advance, when in reality you've thrown it together in no time at all!

Good chicken stock definitely helps and thighs add so much more flavour than chicken breast. Mr Egbert very impressed.

I thought this was actually a bit boring - certainly nothing special. Sorry.

I just made this recipe and it was delicious! So simple to make. I used tarragon and it really complimented the flavour of the mustard. Will definitely be making this again!

Found this recipe on here yesterday, cooked it today. Absolutely gorgeous, cant believe a recipe with so few ingredients could turn out so flavourful. Have saved the recipe and will definitely be cooking it again. My hubby loved it.

Really nice recipe. Straight forward and thus far has been a hit! I fried the chicken in a larger frying pan the second time for the first step and that worked better for me. I also used real chicken stock rather than cubes for the second attempt and this worked well too.

This was very tasty and really easy to make. Think next time though I'll use boneless thighs, mainly because my lot are fussy when it comes to bones! would go well with some crusty bread too.
