  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.

I make this recipe quite often but as we are vegetarian I use quorn fillets instead of chicken and quorn/tesco bacon style slices. I also use very low fat cream cheese. Peas instead of sweetcorn and green beans instead of broad beans.

I'm not one to shy away from rich food but I have to agree with a lot of the other comments - a whole 200g of soft cheese made this really very rich indeed. Quite bizarrely, though, at the same time as being incredibly rich it was really very 'soupy' as well. I guess it would either need a lot more simmering in order to reduce the liquid or just less stock to solve this problem. The combination of flavours and colours were great, though. Will probably make again with some tweakings.

Really enjoyed this next time will use soya beans instead of broad beans, they were way too much hassle

This is lovely, but incredibly rich, even with using 23% reduced fat soft cheese. I didn't think I was a great fan of broad beans (or sweetcorn come to that), but this recipe has changed my mind. You certainly can't eat great piles of it though. Will make again without question.

I made this last night and really enjoyed it. I made sure that I browned the chicken first and didn't find it soggy. I also went for a lighter cream cheese based on what others had said but I'm not sure that the full fat version would be too creamy or rich. I may try that next time or use creme fraiche with French mustard. I may also try doing the potatoes separately either as crispy baked chunks or possibly mashed. Like others here I did have to add extra stock.

Delicious. I would omit the tomatoes next time as I don't think they go that well, and use carrots instead. Added some parsley and agree with other comments re: reducing the soft cheese; I used a third of a pack.

Just made this for our dinner. Wasnt a hit with our 8 year daughter... even though she likes everything in it! I used smoked bacon and that was all I could really taste in the sauce a bit overpowering. Also found it a bit rich so maybe less cheese next time. Got a nice batch of meals for the freezer for my toddler though.
