Serves 4 Syns per serving 1/2 Ready in 1 hour
Low-calorie cooking spray
1 onion, finely chopped
250g chestnut mushrooms, halved
1 large leek, finely sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 1/2 tsp mustard powder
1 level tbsp cornflour
4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cut into 2cm chunks
300ml chicken stock
25g fresh flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked and roughly chopped
1kg floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward
3 large egg yolks
1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/ fan 180°C/gas 6. Spray a large, deep, non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onion, mushrooms and leek, and gently fry for 10 minutes, or until starting to soften. Add the garlic and mustard powder with a splash of water, season and fry for a further minute.
2 Stir in the cornflour, chicken and stock. Simmer gently for 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened, then stir through the parsley and transfer to a baking dish.
3 Peel and grate the potatoes. Discard the peel and put the grated potato in a clean tea towel. Gather up the sides, then squeeze to get rid of as much liquid as possible. Tip into a mixing bowl with the egg yolks, season and mix well. Spoon over the top of the chicken, then bake for 30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, and the top is crisp and golden.
4 Meanwhile, boil the broccoli for 3-4 minutes, then drain. Divide the bake and broccoli between 4 plates, top with a twist of black pepper and serve.
