Food // Chicken with Leeks, Mushrooms and Cream Cheese

Sometimes I cook without a recipe in mind and earlier this week, after a supermarket dash for some of my favourite ingredients, I created a yummy, delicious dish as I went along.

I love creamy chicken pasta dishes and wanted to add some new veggies to my fridge and this was how my Chicken in a Leek, Mushroom and Cream Cheese Sauce came to life!   

 So what do you need?

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 leeks
  • Handful of button mushrooms
  • 1 courgette in ribbons
  • Soft cheese
  • Coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper to season

I gently fried the chicken in rapeseed oil. Chop your veggies and set to one side till the chicken starts to brown. Once itโ€™s simmering, turn down the heat and add the leeks and courgette to the pan.

Throw in the mushrooms and add a small cup of coconut oil. Just enough to make a sauce, that can reduce down with the heat.

Once the milk has evaporated, add the cream cheese. I chose to serve mine with new potatoes as they tasted amazing with the cheesy, leek sauce.

  This dish was a total success and one Iโ€™m looking forward to adapting and trying again. I bet it would be amazing with pork and a dash of mustardโ€ฆ..
