Made this after a stay in hospital and it was on the menu. In the hospital it had peas and peppers in it so have taken away the mushrooms and added that instead. Was amazing

Really good - used chicken legs, browned them first, took them out until stock etc was added, then returned them, and cooked them covered on a low heat, turning occasionally. After an hour, I transferred the chicken to the oven, and covered with foil. I boiled the sauce to reduce and concentrate flavour, before adding the cream and seasoning. If sauce is still too thin, mix a couple of teaspoons of cornflower with a teaspoon of water, and add it to saucepan. Serve with mash or jackets, veg, and crusty bread to mop up the delicious sauce!

Made this for carnivore husband. Was definitely easy to make and made a nice rich sauce. Doesn't say when to add nutmeg so I added with other spices. He said it was good so will make again!

Made this and added some pancetta, felt like it was missing something. I'd try making a more concentrated stock next time.
