I made this tonight for tomorrow nights tea. I did adapt the recipe slightly. I used 500ml of chicken stock.2tbsp of wholegrain mustard. I used chanteray carrots whole, 2x chopped leeks, 1 medium onion instead of spring onions, 8 x baby turnips halfed, same amount of peas, and half a bag of baby potatoes. I used diced chicken and added teaspoon of mixed herbs.. Hubby and I cannot wait to have this tomorrow.Looks and tastes amazing. What I used did make a massive pot. I browned chicken, added in veg and then transferred to large casserole pot - I have family of 5. I put in oven covered in foil for 1.5 hours. Perfect. Pleased I used less stock as I did have to thicken with more than 2 tbsps of plain flour. Great base recipe - thanks.

I am a cooking novice (despite advancing age) and found this recipe simple and delicious.

Love this recipe! I've made it a couple of times, and it's now a family favourite. (Tried it with cubed chicken breast too....just as good).

I really enjoyed cooking this dish as it was simple to make and tasty. I didn't have mustard so hope to add that the next time I make it. For those who said it was bland, I added a bit of garam masala and curry powder as well as lemon juice to balance the flavours.

Made with chicken breast as family prefer, still just as good! Will be on food to cook for friends!

I love versatile recipes like this! I added butter beans to mine and some thyme.

I added a couple extra items for more flavour as some comments said it was a bit bland tasting. The result was very satisfying, I basically followed recipe but added some parsnip batons, sweet potato chunks and a bit more mustard, the result gave a nice, subtle honey hint to go with the mustard. I also increased the amount of carrots and potatoes and I'm glad I did as it was just enough to feed 2 adults and 2 tweens. I served it with rice but some good, crusty bread would have been lovely with it too. Clean plates and positive comments so it's been added into my folder!!

Enjoyed by everyone and v simple. I will double the mustard next time as I thought it a bit bland.
