Volcano with lava (turmeric chicken with mashed potato)
Time to make: 40 mins
- 4 medium potatoes
- 400g chicken (schnitzel or tenderloins are great)
- 1 ½ cups chicken stock
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- 3 tablespoons lite cream cheese
- 3-4 cups vegetables, fresh or frozen
1 Peel and boil potatoes, then mash.
2 Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces. Simmer chicken gently in chicken stock. Once cooked through (7-10 minutes), add turmeric and 3 tablespoons of lite cream cheese to make a sauce (adjust turmeric for colour and flavour).
