The Honey Pot

A honey bee will search up to 5 miles for food, which is about 4.9 miles longer than I'm willing to look.

Chicken & Mushroom Stew

This was originally a pie recipe, but being lazy I couldn't be bothered making a pie so I call it a stew and don't bother with the crust. I usually serve it with broccoli.


  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, diced
  • 8 rashers smoked streaky bacon, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 250g baby chestnut mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 200ml milk


  1. Heat the oil in a large casserole dish. Fry the chicken for 5-8 minutes until golden on both sides and cook through. Place in a bowl.
  2. Add the bacon to the casserole dish and fry for 5 minutes until crisp. Add the onion and mushrooms then fry for a few more minutes. Tip the flour into the pan and cook, stirring for 1 minute.
  3. Take the pan off the heat, then gradually add in the chicken stock, stirring. Do the same with the milk, then add the chicken back into the pan.
  4. Let it simmer for a little while, maybe 10 minutes.
  5. Serve with steamed broccoli.
