Chicken Chasseur

Chicken Chasseur always reminds me of my eldest sister.  It is her speciality 
dish, and I LOVED it!   She has only ever used the packet mixture to make the sauce, and even though for years of buying the same one as her – mine never used to taste as good!

Now I am on my cooking journey, I decided to give a go at making my own version, with very happy results, and the seal of approval from my sister!!

This is perfect for the winter months – luxurious sauce, warm and filling, and if it was a person it would be like having a hug!
