Schwartz creamy chicken and leek bake - advert!

In the past, I normally wouldn't use packet mixes as they had too much rubbish in them. However, they are getting better nowadays.

Whilst visiting DS and DDiL we were given a meal using one of the above mixes and it was delicious. This week, I had a go. It didn't taste the same. Probably because after frying the bacon we removed it and it should have stayed in whilst everything else was cooking. Also, DS said they used more cheese. Ah well, lesson learnt!

Herewith said packet mix:
After first stage of cooking on top of the stove:
After 20 minutes in the oven, topped with a little cheese:
We got two of these dishes, one divided for last nights tea, the other into the freezer for another meal:
We used chicken thighs as they were on offer. Each serving, including peas, cost 95p.

I might have a good at replicating it using fresh lemon zest, marjoram, parsley and a little cream.


  1. Your meal looks very good. I always add lots of cheese cause I love it.

    God bless.
