    I have just made the best dinner ive ever eaten and was all free on EE days. Here is the receipe. let me know what you think??

    Serves approx 4

    4 chicken breasts cut into pieces
    fry light spray
    2 cloves garlic
    rosemary
    thyme
    sage
    1/2 butternut squash
    4 carrots
    2 onions
    handfull of frozen peas
    1 leek
    handful pearl barley
    5 new potatoes
    worcester sauce
    soya sauce
    2 chicken stock cubes
    1 veg stock cubes
    4 -5 tbsp instant mash powder to thicken
    salt & pepper to taste

    Brown the meat with the herbs and garlic, throw all the vegetables and barley in a pot with some boiling water and stock cubes (enough to cover the meat and veg). Add a dash of worcester sauce & soya sauce and simmer until vegetables are cooked (around 30 mins) to thicken the sauce save your sins and add instant mash powder to thicken.

    If you need to add salt and pepper do this before serving.

    This will be going on my menu for next week. I love Chicken Casseroles, but for some reason never make them and always end up with Beef. I love the idea of the pearl barley, I always add it to my soups. Thanks for suggestion!
