This is a great way to use left over chicken. Cut up into suitable sized pieces and added at the same time as the mustard to just warm through in the sauce. If you add it too soon it will cook away to nothing.

Fabulous mid-week meal...! I added an extra tsp of Dijon mustard (as someone had previously suggested on here) & extra creme fraiche, and used it with some wholewheat penne pasta - simple & scrummy!

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.
