This is a good one for using up wee bits of chicken, veg and rice you have leftover but even if you go to the trouble of cooking the rice etc it’s still worth it


2 stalks of celery finely diced

1 onion finely diced

3 teeny sweet peppers finely diced

A handful of sweetcorn

A handful of leftover chicken (there is a chance it's actually Turkey)

1 litre chicken stock

1 litre of water

1/4 pint of milk

4TBSP butter

2TBSP flour

1 cup of cooked rice


1I melted 2 TBSP butter in a pot and sautéed my onion, celery and peppers for 5 minutes then I tipped them onto a plate and melted the other 2 TBSP of butter and used the flour to make a roux

2Then I stirred in my milk and whisked til it was a very thick but smooth sauce

3Then I whisked in my stock and finally my water

4I then added the sautéed veg and sweetcorn and simmered for 15 minutes before adding the rice and chicken

5I had a wee taste and then added salt and pepper and voila! Ready
