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.
If you want to make ahead - at the end of stage 4, allow to cool, cover with foil and place in the fridge until required. Remove from the fridge about 1/2 hour before baking.
This was very nice and so easy to make and although I made several ingredient changes (mainly to use up some fresh ingredients I had) it clearly proves itself as a fantastic base that can easily be adjusted to suit your own tastes, although there is absolutely nothing wrong with the original! I did not use broccoli, but instead added a yellow pepper, mushrooms, twice the amount of garlic (as we love it) and topped with about a dozen whole cherry tomatoes and panko breadcrumbs. Following the advice of other reviewers I also used two cans of soup and this worked perfectly, one tin would have probably been too little. The clean plates all round spoke volumes, thank for posting this, we will certainly be using it again! - 21 Jun 2015
