Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Ten-Min Creamy Tarragon & Mustard Chicken

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps

Wash your fruit and veg

Note: equipment and pan sizes vary. Ensure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2 Ten-Min Creamy Tarragon & Mustard Chicken

Now, let's get started!

Boil half a kettle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the diced chicken, season with a pinch of salt and cook for 4-5 min or until starting to brown

3 Ten-Min Creamy Tarragon & Mustard Chicken

Meanwhile, dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube in 100ml [150ml] boiled water and add the wholegrain mustard and creme fraiche – this is your creamy stock

4 Ten-Min Creamy Tarragon & Mustard Chicken

Squeeze the pouch[es] of steamed brown basmati rice to separate the grains

Tear the top corner of the pouch[es] (just a little!) and microwave for 2 min or until piping hot

Tip: If you're cooking two pouches, pop them in together but increase the microwave cook time accordingly

5 Ten-Min Creamy Tarragon & Mustard Chicken

Meanwhile, strip the tarragon leaves from their stems and roughly tear

Discard the stalks

 

 

6 Ten-Min Creamy Tarragon & Mustard Chicken

Add the creamy stock to the pan with the torn tarragon and bring to the boil over a high heat

Season with a very generous pinch of black pepper 

Meanwhile, drain and rinse the green lentils

7 Ten-Min Creamy Tarragon & Mustard Chicken

Add the drained lentils and spinach to the pan and cook for 1-2 min or until the spinach is starting to wilt – this is your creamy tarragon & mustard chicken

Note: Please make sure you cook your chicken thoroughly (until piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies
