This recipe is one that my Mum used to make. It is one of my favourites, I think I may have even requested it for a birthday dinner once. The name isn't terribly romantic, and I could be creative and rename it, but to me, it is Chicken and Potato Slice. And it is goooood. I don't tend to make it often because it's a little fiddly, but it is well worth it!
Chicken and Potato Slice
500g chicken thigh fillets
3 large potatoes
1 tsp chicken stock powder
1 floret brocoli
1 floret cauliflower
1/2 cup grated cheese
For the sauce:
4 tbs butter
4 tbs cornflour
2 cups of milk (alternately you can use 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of chicken stock)
2 tsp mustard
4 tsp mayoniase
3 tsp sour cream
1/4 cup of grated cheese
First, put two pots of water on to boil. In one, place the chopped broccoli and cauliflower, and in the other place the potatoes slice thinly. Then fry chopped chicken fillets with garlic, chicken stock, and onion.
Once the vegetables are cooked, (if you hate washing up like me) you can re-use one of the saucepans to cook the sauce. Melt the butter over a low heat, then add the cornflour. Once that makes a paste, gradually add the milk while stirring. Once the sauce has thickened, add the mayonaise, mustard, sour cream and grated cheese.
Once everything is cooked, grease a baking dish, then place the potatoes on the bottom.
Followed by the brocolli and cauliflower.
Finally pour over the sauce and sprinkle over the remaining grated cheese.
Then place the dish in a fan forced 180 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes or until the cheese is beautiful and golden. Hopefully something like this.
Also, guess who is being a big girl and drinking cows milk?
Wohoo!!! Anyway, I hope you enjoy the dish if you make it, we did!
