  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.

We really enjoy this recipe, so simple yet so tasty!

Didn't like this. Shame, it smelled so good when cooking. I think the cream cheese was a mistake. Would try with creme fraiche instead.

Easy, very tasty and colourful! Add some herbs.

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.
