❆ (casserole only, without the fromage frais)
Ready in about 1 hour 40 minutes
Syns per serving: ½
4 baking potatoes
Low-calorie cooking spray
3 leeks, thinly sliced
8 skinless and boneless chicken thighs, visible fat removed, cut into bite-size chunks
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 level tbsp cornflour
2 tsp mustard powder
500ml chicken stock
200g green beans, trimmed
200g sugar snap peas
4 tbsp fat-free natural fromage frais
Finely chopped fresh chives, to serve
1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Prick the potatoes with a fork, then spread on a baking tray and bake for 1 hour-1 hour 30 minutes, or until soft.
2 Meanwhile, spray a large, lidded, non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Fry the leeks for 7-8 minutes until softened, stirring frequently. Add the chicken and season. Increase the heat to medium-high and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, or until the chicken is browned.
3 Reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic, cornflour, mustard powder and a splash of water. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour in the stock and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook gently for 25 minutes.
4 Add the beans and sugar snap peas, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes uncovered. Remove from the heat and stir in the fromage frais. Top with the chives and some freshly ground black pepper, then divide the casserole between 4 plates and serve with the potatoes.
