Here is one of the cookbook’s exclusive recipes:

Chicken and Leek Casserole

This recipe is a great wholesome midweek supper to have in your repertoire. Adding extra vegetables and beans to a casserole helps you towards your five a day while also making the meat go further.



  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 500g boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 400g leeks, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 400g can haricot beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 300ml homemade chicken stock | page 15 | or ready-made, low-salt alternative
  • A bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped (20g)
  • 234 Kcal / 989 kJ


  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick saut pan and cook the chicken over a high heat until browned on both sides. Remove from the pan, drain on kitchen paper and keep warm.
  2. Add the leeks to the pan and cook over a low heat for 3-4 minutes until softened but not browned. Add the beans, thyme, bay leaf and stock, cover and simmer for a further 4 minutes.
  3. Arrange the chicken on top of the beans, cover the pan and cook over a low heat for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Scatter with flat-leaf parsley and serve with pearl barley, steamed broccoli florets and some wilted chard or asparagus.
  4. Note: You can also serve with some healthier garlic bread, made by rubbing a halved garlic clove over slices of toasted wholegrain baguette and drizzling over a little olive oil.
