  • Cheesy Chicken & Leek Potato Bake – Watch this dish bubble as this cheesy bake cooks to perfection in the oven
  • Lincolnshire Sausage Casserole – A delicious blend of herbs and spices enhance this traditional autumn classic

I received a selection of Maggi’s Fresh Ideas range and my first recipe to try was Cheesy Chicken & Leek Potato Bake, followed by Lincolnshire Sausage Bake.

While I was out, hubby decided to try Roasted Apple & Sage Pork and have it ready for dinner when we got home.

Roasted Apple & Sage Pork Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 4 pork chops
  • 2 small pink or red apples, finely sliced
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • Vegetables to serve

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C (170C for fan ovens) or Gas Mark 5. Whisk the Maggi mix with 200ml water in a large bowl.
  2. Add the fresh ingredients to the bowl. Mix thoroughly and then tip everything into a large roasting tray.
  3. Roast for about 45-50 minutes. Ensure the pork is cooked and piping hot throughout before serving.

We enjoyed Roasted Apple & Sage Pork with steamed broccoli and cooked red cabbage. You could also swap the apples for vegetables such as carrots, leeks and celery. Hubby cooked this dish and he said that it was extremely easy to make.

Little man and I approved daddy’s Roasted Apple & Sage Pork meal – it was delicious and full of flavour.

The new ‘Fresh Ideas’ products will be available in most major supermarkets for an RRP of 89p*, alongside the existing products in the range and Maggi’s popular favourites, the ‘So Juicy’ and ‘So Crispy’ ranges.

I received a selection of Maggi’s Fresh Ideas range and my first recipe to try was Cheesy Chicken & Leek Potato Bake. Now we tried Lincolnshire Sausage Casserole.

Lincolnshire Sausage Casserole Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 450 Lincolnshire sausages
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 medium carrots sliced
  • Vegetables to serve

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (160C for fan ovens) or Gas Mark 4. Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the sausages and onion until browned and then tip into a casserole dish with the carrots.
  2. Whisk the recipe mix with 400ml water in a jug and pour into the casserole dish. Cover and cook for about 45-50 minutes.
  3. Ensure that the casserole is cooked and piping hot throughout before serving.

We love sausage and mash and Maggi’s Lincolnshire Sausage casserole was a great twist to a traditional family meal.

We had it with mash potato and carrots, but you could also have it with peas and broccoli. It was a success!

Each new addition to the range is ready to serve in just three easy steps, clearly marked on the packet for the ultimate ease of use. Maggi’s ‘Fresh Ideas’ contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and are designed to provide hearty, delicious meals.

I received a selection of Maggi’s Fresh Ideas range and my first recipe to try was Cheesy Chicken & Leek Potato Bake.

Cheesy Chicken & Leek Potato Bake Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 500g boneless skinless chicken thighs, chopped
  • 2 medium leeks, sliced and washed
  • 700ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 60g reduced fat grated mature cheese
  • Vegetables to serve

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C (180C for fan ovens) or Gas Mark 6. Fry the chicken and leeks in the oil in a large non stick pan until golden brown.
  2. Whisk the Maggi recipe mix with the milk in a jug then add to the pan with the chicken. Add the potatoes, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Carefully pour the mixture into the ovenproof dish and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked and the top is browned. Ensure the bake is piping hot throughout before serving.

The whole family enjoyed Maggi’s Cheesy Chicken & Leek Potato Bake. It was easy to make and very creamy and delicious. We had it with carrots, but you can also have it with steamed courgettes, peas and sweetcorn! Yummy!
