I came up with this recipe when i was having a super carb craving day. I love potato bake, but sometimes it can be a bit boring or bland. With only my pantry items and a few staples i created this creamy, soft and golden topped bake. This recipe can be quite rich, so if you wanted it to be lighter, cut out the cream (but we all love to indulge every now and then).
5 Large potatoes, sliced
1 packet cream of chicken soup mix (click here for picture)
200ml Chicken Stock
100ml Thickened Cream
Cheese of your choice (optional)
Herbs of your choice - i used chives and parsley (optional) to serve
Boil potato slice in salted water for 10mins then drain.
Mix together chicken soup mix, chicken stock, milk, and thickened cream in a jug.
Lay a single layer of potato slices in a baking dish. Top with cheese (if wanted) and then top with cream mix until just covered, season with salt and pepper. Keep layering until all the potatoes are used up. Top with cheese and cover with alfoil. Bake in a 180'c preheated oven for 45mins, remove foil and bake for a further 15mins or until golden. Top with fresh herbs if wanted and serve hot.
