Quick weekday meals can be difficult, especially after a busy weekend. Whether it is a meal for one, or a meal for a family, having to come up with a fast weekday recipe can be exhausting. Whats worse is opening up your cupboard and fridge to find very little in it that you can use. We have created a quick dish which can be used with all the staples you have ready in your fridge.

Our Honey & Mustard Chicken is nutritious, filling, and quick to make,  and can easily be made by a skilful chef or an amateur cook.

You can, however, slice the chicken and have it as a pasta or alternatively you can have it as a sauce with rice. The choice is yours!

250ml white wine
4 chopped garlic cloves

1 tsp ground white pepper
5 tbsp cornflour
200 ml double cream


  1. Place all the ingredients, apart from the chicken, cornflour and double cream into a pan
