Chicken, bacon and leek stew.

Day 2: Chicken, bacon and leek stew with wholegrain rice and asparagus
Serves 2 | Syns per portion: FREE
This is total comfort food. It's really cheap, easy and warming and versatile. You can serve the stew with veg, potatoes, rice, pasta. Whatever you want! It would be super delicious as a pie filling. You can also bung whatever you want in there, it's perfect for getting rid of any left overs or if you have some spare food you need to use up. Here's how it's done.


1 sliced white onion
5 thinly sliced leeks 
2 slices of smoked bacon, fat removed
2 Chicken breasts
300ml Chicken stock (I used a knorr chicken stock cube)
Pepper for seasoning

Step 1: Using a heavy duty pan or wok (I used the latter) on a moderate heat, fry the onions, leeks along side the bacon for about 10 minutes until soft and caramelised.

Step 2: Add the chicken to the pan on a really high heat and brown. As soon it's coated, add the stock and keep on a high heat for about 10-15 minutes or until the stock has thickened and the chicken is cooked. I cut my chicken up into tiny shreds so it cooked pretty quick. 

Step 3: Season and eat?

Yes folks, it's really that simple. I served mine with asparagus and wholegrain rice. It was really filling and subtle but tasty. Play around with different vegetables, meats and stock. Enjoy!
