This recipe is one of my ultimate faves...

Creamy White Wine Chicken With Mushrooms & Leeks, Served With Boiled Rice.

Recipe serves 2. Just 1.5 syns (1 for the wine and 0.5 for the creme fraiche) plus half hexa (15g parmesan)

The garlic bread is from ALDI and is 5 syns per slice.

What you'll need -

  • 2 chopped chicken breasts.
  • 1 sliced leek.
  • Half of a small chopped white onion.
  • 150g sliced mushrooms.
  • Half tsp lazy garlic.
  • Half tsp chilli flakes (optional but we love it with a kick)
  • 30g grated parmesan (half of your hexa)
  • 300ml chicken stock. 
  • 62ml dry white wine (2 syns)
  • 2 tbsp reduced fat creme fraiche (for this ive used ASDA 'good and counted' creme fraiche which is only 0.5 syns per tbsp! - i also like using sainsburys 'lighter' creme fraiche which is 1 syn per tbsp.

Method -

  • In a pan, fry the leek, mushrooms,onion, garlic and chilli flakes in fry light.
  • Once softened add in your chicken breasts and let it seal but don't cook through! It will cook in the sauce, this keeps the chicken nice and juicy!
  • Once sealed (after a minute or so) add in the white wine and let it sizzle and reduce right down! 
  • Then add in your chicken stock and some cracked black pepper, turn down the heat and let it simmer for 20 - 25 minutes until the stock has reduced by half.
  • Add in your parmesan, stir and let it heat through.
  • Then add in 2 tbsp creme fraiche and let it simmer away until its bubbling and hot! 
  • Serve with boiled rice. This dish also goes well with garlic bread ;) You can also stir this through cooked pasta for a beautiful pasta sauce!
