Staying on the subject of pancakes just for a bit longer…….just because I had a tiny bit of batter left in the fridge that had to be used up urgently………..on Monday evening I made the last 2 pancakes …..and seeing as it was my detox day and so no food allowed for this girl I took out 2 chicken breast fillets and made the chicken fricassee that I had previously spied over at

bigbigjoe ‘s

delightful blog Bon Gusto and then blogged by me HERE, and pimped it a bit by using onion instead of leeks (just ‘cos that’s what I had in the kitchen Belinda), button mushrooms instead of portabellini (ditto) and adding some frozen peas about 5 minutes before the end of cooking time. I then used this as a filling for the 2 pancakes and served it up as dinner with a small garden salad for my brownieboy. He raved about it and told me I absolutely HAD to blog it and tell everyone that he says you lot have to try this………,because I ALWAYS do as I am told………….. :o)




2 Skinless Chicken Breast fillets – sliced into thin strips

1Large Onion – chopped up in ¼’s lengthwise then finely sliced

1 Garlic Clove finely grated

1 Glug Olive Oil and 1 Tbs Butter

1 Glass Chardonnay

½ Glass Water

½ Pkt Button Mushrooms – finely sliced

200ml Cream

1 tsp Dijon Mustard

½ tsp Dried Tarragon

1tsp Fresh Thyme Leaves picked from stems

1 Lemon

Fresh Parsley – handful chopped finely

¼ Cup Frozen Petit Pois

Salt & Cracked Black Pepper


Heat a large saucepan over high heat

Add the oil, butter, onion, garlic, thyme, wine & water.

Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 5 min

Add the chicken, mushrooms, cream, mustard and tarragon.

Stir well, then lower heat to very gentle and allow to simmer for 10 minutes

Add the frozen peas and allow to simmer for 5 more minutes

Squeeze in the juice from the lemon and season to taste

Serve as a filling in 2 warmed pancakes, reserving some sauce to pour over the top of the pancakes &  sprinkle with the parsley.

  1. Sorry, detox and this recipe? explain please.

  2. I was detoxing on Monday so was not able to eat Supa so I did this for my brownieboy and I ate nought,nothing,zero,zilch,nada, nix!!! But he said it was so fabulously delicious that I had to blog about it. xxx

  3. hmmmm that looks sooooooo good it would be a shame not to try it out! Have a great evening! :)

  4. Oi! Stoppitnow! I had to go out and buy eggs after you last blogged about pancakes and then I guzzled the ENTIRE batch for brekkie. Enuff is enuff. Quit with the temptation already!
