    Creamy chicken with asparagus and lemon

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    25g butter
    350g pack essential Waitrose British Chicken Mini Breast Fillets, halved
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    2 tbsp plain flour
    100ml dry white wine
    300ml chicken stock
    450g bunched asparagus, trimmed and cut into 5cm lengths
    100ml double cream
    Juice and zest of 1 lemon
    2-3 tbsp chopped fresh mint and parsley


    1. Melt the butter in a heavy-based casserole, add the chicken and brown lightly on all sides over a medium high heat. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.

    2. Add the onion to the pan and cook over a low heat for several minutes until lightly coloured. Return the chicken and any juices to the pan. Sprinkle over the flour, stir and let it cook for a minute. Increase the heat and add the white wine, stirring. Gradually add the stock and bring to the boil, stirring, then lower the heat and simmer gently for about 5 minutes until the chicken is nearly cooked through.

    3. Add the asparagus and seasoning, pushing the asparagus under the surface of the liquid, and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, until the asparagus is tender. Stir in the cream, lemon zest and juice and chopped herbs. Check the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat, then season to taste and serve with steamed rice.
