Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Very nice, although I either need a dryer cider or to use white wine instead - the sauce was just a bit sweet. I served it with creme fraiche and wild garlic mashed potatoes.

    This is delicious, easy comfort food. I tend to add the petit pois with only a few minutes of cooking remaining, so they keep their colour. There are so many tweaks that can be made to this dish - sausages instead of chicken, stock or wine instead of cider, added beans (butterbeans, cannellini, borlotti etc) Reliable and a regular meal in our house, especially in the colder months.

    Loved this for a spring lunch. Light and delicious and reasonably quick to make.
