  • 1 leek or large onion chopped
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 carrots cut into thickish rounds
  • 500 g mini/chat/baby potatoes quartered
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary - finely chopped 1/2 tsp dried
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 tbsp. French mustard
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Pre heat oven to 160c.
  • Coat chicken in flour, reserving excess flour.

  • Add leek, carrot, potatoes and garlic and fry for 1-2 mins.
  • Add remaining flour and fry for a further 1-2 mins.
  • Add wine and simmer for 1-2 mins, scraping any brownings from the base of the pan.
  • Stir in Dijon mustard, add chicken and stock and bring to a simmer.
  • Bake, covered for 1 hour.
  • **if making 2 Way Dinner remove 500g of chicken (shred) & 1 1/2 cups of sauce (without veg)**
  • Remove from oven. Stir through French mustard and rosemary.
  • Simmer on stove uncovered for 20 mins then serve.

Notes

If only making Creamy Mustard Chicken to serve 8 you will need to double the quantity of all ingredients EXCEPT for the chicken thighs.
If you want to make the second meal of Chicken, Bacon & Potato Pots more than three days after cooking, you can combine the 500g of shredded chicken and 1 1/2 cups of sauce/liquid and freeze in a zip lock bag for later use.
Here is the link to the 2nd recipe -  Chicken, Bacon & Potato Pots. These are meant to look a bit rustic too - I think it's part of their charm! You get some lovely crispy potato slices on top, and if some fall off during cooking it only means more crispy ones! Go the crispy chips!
