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
