The instruction how to make Chicken with spring vegetables

  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken and cook, turning once, for 4-5 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  2. Drain excess fat from the saucepan, leaving about 1 tablespoon in the pan. Reduce heat to medium. Add the leek and garlic, and cook, stirring often, for 6 minutes or until the leek starts to soften. Increase heat to high. Add the wine and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the wine has reduced by half. Add the stock and bring to the boil.
  3. Return the chicken to the pan. Add the lemon rind. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, for 40 minutes. Stir in the tomato and broad beans. Cook, covered, for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. (To freeze, see note.)
  4. Place the cornflour in a small bowl. Stir in the cream. Add to the chicken mixture and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Stir in the parsley. Divide the chicken mixture among serving plates and serve with mash.
