Hearty Homemade Chicken Supreme

Posted on: 16th April 2013

Posted in: Main dishes, Recipes

This is my homemade chicken supreme recipe – an easy, cheap and filling dinner that only takes 30 minutes to make. Great when you want a filling dinner on a budget. It’s also gluten-free, so perfect for anyone with coeliac disease. As this is a healthy meal for the whole family, I used my blender to make suitable lumpy puree for my 6 1/2 month old as well (see photo at the end).

Ingredients

  • Maximum of 300g (uncooked weight) of basmati rice (75g per adult)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 375g chicken breast, diced
  • 2 large carrots
  • 180g frozen or tinned sweetcorn
  • 125g mushrooms
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 2 level tablespoons cornflour
  • 400ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Method

  • In the first saucepan, cook the rice in boiling water for 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain
  • Meanwhile, in a second saucepan, add the olive oil and heat until hot
  • Add the chopped onions, crushed garlic, and diced chicken breast, and lightly brown
  • In a small measuring jug, add the cornflour and enough of the milk to make a smooth paste. Then, gradually mix in the rest of the milk
  • Add the cornflour/milk mixture to the chicken mixture, along with a crushed stock cube. The mixture should thicken up on cooking
  • Add the carrots and mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes (I pre-cooked my carrots in the microwave to make them softer to start with)
  • Add the black pepper to taste

Servings

This meal will serve 4 adults, or 2 adults and 4 hungry children

Cost per serving

No more than £1.40 per serving (£5.50 for the entire meal)

Nutritional information

Tips / Serving suggestions

  • Use any leftover chicken supreme on a jacket potato for lunch the next day
  • I did not add any salt (the stock cubes contain plenty of salt in my opinion). You can use low salt stock cubes/low salt bouillon (or make your own stock) to lower the salt content even further
  • If you need/want to gain weight, use a 284ml carton of double cream and 100ml whole milk instead of 400ml semi-skimmed milk, to add extra calories and protein
  • Add extra vegetables that need using up to increase your 5-a-day portions (peppers or spinach would work well)
