We all have days where we are rushed off our feet or unexpected visitors arrive for coffee and forget to go home when it is time to make dinner.. So what do you do? Let Grannymar come to the rescue with this magic dish from the fridge and store cupboard. Even Paddy Bloggit could make this one 😉
Grannymar’s Emergency Chicken Crumble
Serves 6 190°C
4 large Chicken breasts chopped*
Tin of Peach slices well drained
2 tablespoons milk
Tin Campbell’s Condensed Chicken Soup
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
Pinch of mixed spice
Dash Worcestershire sauce
Dash Sherry or wine
Mixed Veg.- Baby corn, Carrots, Beans &Mange-tout.
Ready made stuffing for topping.
Drain peaches of all moisture. Fry the onion until soft & remove from pan. Fry chicken for a few minutes until sealed. Blanch the vegetables. Mix soup with the remainder of ingredients. Spread chicken, onion, vegetables and sliced peaches in a casserole dish and cover with soup mixture. Sprinkle a thick covering of stuffing on top. Cook in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Serve with new potatoes, rice or champ.
* Cold precooked chicken may be used.
I hear the chorus already…. What is CHAMP?
Champ is a very popular potato dish here in Northern Ireland, but since it contains a dairy full of milk and butter I never make it!
125g spring onions, or 40g chives, chopped
salt and pepper
If using onions, simmer these in the milk until soft. Boil the potatoes in salted water until just cooked, then mash. Add the onions and their milk or the chives, if used, together with the milk which you have heated separately. Season to taste.
Let the butter melt over the finished dish.
