Loved the fact it was just a one pot meal which made it for a quick and easy tea and a quick clean up. But the meal itself was not very enjoyable at all, it was just lacking flavour we found it to be bland

We enjoyed this recipe.
I made a half recipe and went a bit lighter on the cream which l only used to mix with the cornflour and added with about an hour to go.
I used what the garden was growing in the veg line. So baby carrots, leek, whole baby pea pods and sweet potatoes.
Very yum and it will be rotated with the sticky french chicken recipe for regular chicken meals.

Winning! Cooked this for the first time last week and have requests to cook it again and work friends are asking for the recipe. Added corn kernels with the beans. Simple and tasty meal that is even tastier the day after cooking.

Oh this is great!!! I used 8 chicken thighs on the top, and lifted them with an hour to go to put the beans underneath. The cream had split so I poured in about another half cup of cream and it all came back together and was just lovely. Thank you!
