Jamie’s Mustard Chicken

Sometimes we fall in a loop of eating the same meals week after week. But I was having a browse through our fairly well worn copy of Jamie Oliver’s “30 Minute Meals” when I realised that there are actually loads of them that we haven’t tried at all. (Does anyone else find that actually, you’d have to be superhuman to do any of the 30 minute meals, actually in the allotted 30 minutes?) 

I loved the kick of the wholegrain mustard at the end of the recipe. It’s quite smooth and packed with flavour, with just a hit of spice at the end. Plus this is one of my favourite ways to cook leeks!
