Method Prep:20min › Cook:1hr › Ready in:1hr20min
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Place the chicken legs into a large lidded casserole dish, or a lidded roasting tin, and cover.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear when a skewer is inserted at the thickest part of the joint.
Once the chicken is cooked through, pour out the juices from the casserole dish into a large non-stick saucepan or wok.
Return the chicken to the oven, uncovered, increasing the temperature to 200 C / Gas 6 to allow it to brown.
Put the onions, carrots and mushrooms into the saucepan with the chicken juices, and cook over a high heat, stirring frequently, until tender.
Stir in the mustard and honey, and enough flour to bring it all together (usually around 1 heaped tablespoon, depending on how much juice you got from your chicken). Then add milk a little at a time, stirring continuously, until your sauce is a pouring consistency.
Add frozen peas, if using, then pour the sauce over the chicken and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes to brown slightly. Serve with mashed or roast potatoes, or rice.
Instead of 2 chicken legs you can use two chicken breast fillets or 4 drumsticks or thighs.
