Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the bacon for 2 mins. Add the chicken, then cook with the bacon for a further 2-3 mins, until the pieces begin to turn golden. Tip in the leeks and cook gently for 10 mins until wilted and tender.
  2. Stir through the flour and gradually add the stock, stirring constantly. Add the wholegrain mustard and crème fraîche, stir again, then simmer gently for 5 mins until the sauce is slightly thickened and creamy. Serve on top of baked jacket potatoes.

Really quick and easy and full of flavour. Added some onion and couple garlic cloves and used a home made chicken stock - beautiful.

Pretty bland with a slimy texture. Won't be trying this one again

Really easy and tasty. Used red pesto instead of mustard and added some chopped up sundried tomatoes and had with roasted sweet potatoes. Will definitely make again

Really easy and tastey and the kids enjoyed it too. Only used one leek and added a clove of garlic. Also used more mustard - 1tbsp wholegrain and 1tbsp dijon. Was great over jacket potatoes. The portions were generous as it was quite rich!

Cooked this twice. Once for a friend and once for the boyfriend, both absolutely loved it. Making again on Friday.

i wasnt too sure about this. it seemed to have a slightly slimey texture! also, i would have halfed this recipe to feed 2 as there was way too much to serve with a jacket potato. dont think i will be making this any time soon.

I was slightly disappointed by this recipe as I found it all a bit too much. I don't think you need the chicken and in fact it would be a nicer, lighter meal without it. And it makes a huge amount!

Lovely creamy flavoursome dish - filling and satisfying! Will definitely make again, will probably try it with rice or pasta next time.

a very tasty topping for jacket potatoes. i used a little less chicken stock than stated and only one leek (as it was rather large). i think i put a bit too much mustard in - not something you'll hear me say very often! - and would use a more accurately measured tablespoonful in the future. the portions were quite generous, although nothing we couldn't manage... i just wished that we had bigger potatoes!

It was really lovely - I had to use sour cream instead of creme fraiche (Currently live in the US), but it worked out anyway. I also added mushrooms and some onions.

easy, tasty, used plain low fat yoghourt instead of creme fraiche as i didn't have the latter, & put in pancakes intstead of potato (as it's pancake day). Yummy
