MMM {eats} Store cupboard cooking

I am queen of the chuck-it-in tea. While my husband loves planning and preparing dinners (that use every pan), I am much happier concocting something quick, easy and with ingredients to hand.

This is a simple and super tasty mid-week meal that will see even the fussiest of eaters enjoy. My mum made it once and I have blatantly stolen it, made it mine and adapted it to whatever we have in the fridge. It actually gets ‘yummy’ noises from my pair and has become a bit of a regular tea.

Substitute as your tastes require – a mixture of sweet and normal white potato works really nicely as a topping combo too.

My Tin Of Soup One-Pot Tea

You will need:

Ingredients: Mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, chicken, onion, garlic, potatoes. one tin of condensed chicken or mushroom soup. I bought the wrong one here, but it still worked!

Par boil your spuds (about 5-10 minutes). In another deep frying pan, fry off your garlic and onion until browned. Add the chicken and mushrooms and fry off until chicken is cooked through. I added a splash of olive oil to cook all this in.

Par boil your broccoli and carrots (you don't want them too soggy when you add them in, so aim for them to have some bite). Then add into your chicken and mushroom mixture. Add your tin of soup.

Add into your oven dish. Mine is an amazing bake set from Falcon Enamelwear - love it.

Your potatoes should have cooled down enough to slice into thin wedges. Layer over the top of your mixture.

I had a bit of mozzarella knocking around in the fridge so dotted this over the potatoes.

Put into oven (about 120 degrees) for around 40 minutes or until the potatoes have browned off. You could substitute  parmesan instead of mozzarella.
