About this recipe: Delicious and easy midweek meal. Chicken with broccoli, leek and pasta in a cream of chicken sauce made from Heinz soup. A firm family favourite in our household which is ecomonical to make. Easy to double up and prepare in advance. Heinz soup has many other uses than just what is says on the tin.

A lovely meal and easy to make. I halved most of ingredients because made it for 2 and a toddler. Used whole tin of soup though so would recommend getting a second tin if making it for 4 because there was only just enough sauce for 2. - 03 Feb 2013

Beautiful empty plates all round, which is rare in,our house with 4 fussy kids I tweaked it slightly, I added som Parmesan , instead of breadcrumbs I added crisps which was yum TIP....I always coat chicken in plain flour, it makes the chicken soft and juicy - 26 Aug 2013
