Recipe type: Main
  • 4 cups of chicken stock (a gluten-free one)
  • 3 chicken thighs - diced
  • 2 potatoes - diced
  • 3 carrots - diced
  • 2 stalks of celery- diced
  • Handful of sliced fresh green beans
  • ¼ onion diced - diced
  • 2 tablespoons of sliced leeks
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup of butter - cubed
  • ⅓ cup of gluten free flour (I use Orgran Gluten Free Flour) (or you could use gluten free corn flour)
  • 2 cups of milk (I use almond milk)
  • 2 cups of cheese - I use cheddar
  • Parsley to garnish
  1. Using a large saucepan, add 1 teaspoon of the butter and add the sliced leeks and on a low heat, gradually cook them till they just start to go see through
  2. Add in the chicken stock, the potatoes, carrots, onion, celery, green beans and salt & pepper
  3. Bring to the boil for about 10-15 mins until the vegetables are just starting to become soft.
  4. Add in the diced chicken thighs and boil until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
  5. In another saucepan, melt the remaining butter on a medium heat and then whisk in the flour until smooth (Whisk well to get rid of any lumps) (This makes the roux) and then gradually whisk in the milk and then bring to the boil until it has thickened (about 2 mins or so).
  6. Add the cheese and take the saucepan off the heat and stir until the cheese has melted and is mixed through.
  7. Stir the cheese mixture into the chicken and vegetables and cook until it is hot and ready to serve.
