This is a nice homely meal for Autumn, to fill you up as the nights get colder.  The celeriac gives a delicate aniseed flavour to the mash.   Which is nice for a change and is a gentle introduction to this flavour for children.   

Preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 celeriac

3 chicken breasts (or enough for your family)

300g new potatoes (or enough for your family).

150g sprouts or similar greens.

1 knob of butter

ready made gravy (ok, so its a bit of a cheat but its quick!)

Method

  1. Peel and chop the celeriac then put it in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil.
  2. Grill the chicken breasts, turning occasionally.  Meanwhile, clean the potatoes and cut into bite sized chunks of a similar size.  Put these into a pan of cold water and bring to the boil.
  3. Clean the sprouts (removing any damaged outer leaves and scoring a cross in the hard core).  Once the potatoes have started to boil, add the sprouts to the pan.
  4. When the celeriac is tender, drain, then add the butter.  Mash or blend until smooth.
  5. Make the gravy according to pack instructions.
  6. Once everything is cooked through and tender, drain the vegetables and serve with the chicken, mash and gravy.

TIP:  If you have any chicken breasts left over, these can be frozen, uncooked for another meal or grilled with the others and enjoyed in a sandwich for lunch the next day.

Now for a loosely ‘chicken’ themed make:
