  • 400g cooked chicken cut into chunks (about 4 chicken breasts)
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 punnet button mushrooms sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Maizena
  • 60g butter or margarine
  • 150ml milk
  • 150ml cream
  • 250ml chicken stock

  • In a pot, melt the butter or margarine.
  • Add the green pepper and cook for 5 minutes until soft.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Take the pot off the heat and stir in the Maizena so it is well combined with the remaining liquid.
  • Gradually stir in the chicken stock, followed by the milk.
  • Put the pot back on the heat and cook, stirring continuously, until the mixture comes to the boil and thickens.
  • Turn down the heat and add the cream and chicken, stirring to combine.
