Instructions

Cook the Potatoes
1

Boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes. Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional). 
Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook until fork tender, 15-20 mins. Once cooked, drain the potatoes in a colander and return to the pan off the heat. Add a knob of butter and a splash of water or milk. Mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm. 

Get Prepped
2
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • Trim the carrot (no need to peel). Chop into 1cm chunks.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Brown the Chicken
3
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, add the chicken (cook in two batches if necessary). IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Season with salt and pepper and cook until the chicken is browned, 6-7 mins.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to vacuum packing we use to keep it fresh.

Soften the Veg
4
  • Add the the onion and carrot and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, 4-5 mins.
  • Stir in the mushrooms and a little more oil if needed. Turn the heat up slightly.
  • Cook everything together until the mushrooms are browned, about 5-6 mins.
  • Add the garlic, stir and cook for 1 min.
Make the Sauce
5
  • Add 150ml water (double for 4p) and stock powder to the pan. Bring to the boil and stir to dissolve. 
  • Stir in Worcester sauce and creme fraiche. Bring back to the boil, then turn down the heat.
  • Simmer gently until reduced by around one-third, 3-4 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

TIP: Loosen with a splash of water if necessary!

Finish and Serve
6
  • Transfer the contents of the pan to an appropriately-sized ovenproof dish.
  • Top with the mash then bake on the top shelf of your oven until the topping is golden brown and chicken is cooked through, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Serve straight from the dish!
