We have been trying a few different meals lately. This is my Chicken Chasseur recipe, I haven’t made it for years, in fact it’s been that long none of the kids have ever had it and Colby is 14.
Like a lot of families, trying to keep the meals varied and interesting can prove hard work. There’s 7 of us and of course they don’t always like the same thing. This went down quite well, better than I thought actually so I thought I’d leave the recipe here.
It can be made with beef too, but I thought it was too similar to our beef casserole so used chicken. We also added green beans but you can add any veg or leave it out completely.
4 chicken breast chopped into large pieces
8 rashers of streaky bacon chopped or diced
200g of button mushrooms
100 sliced green beans
1 tbsp of flour
400g tin chopped tomatoes
2 cloves of chopped garlic or lazy garlic
1 large onion diced
1 beef stock cube
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
A handful of chopped parsley
Heat the bacon in a pan for around 2 minutes until brown. Add the chicken and fry for another 3 minutes until brown.
Add the mushrooms and flour and cook on a high heat until a paste forms. Add the onions, green beans and garlic.
Turn the heat down and add the tomatoes and crumble in the beef stock cube. Stir well
Finally stir through the chopped parsley and Worcestershire sauce. simmer for 15 minutes and serve with mashed potato or boiled rice.
We had mashed potato, but I think rice will be just as nice. A really versatile recipe that can be adapted and changed to everyone’s taste.
See you soon
