Tip

This mornay mix is so versatile. How about adding some corn and making it into a chicken pie mix. Or using the leftovers to make some amazing vol-au-vents! Just dice your chicken to size accordingly.

This dish freezes well.

  • Delicious! Loved it! I used

    Delicious! Loved it! I used fresh asparagus as that is what I had & it was great (though a different consistency than you'd get with tinned spears).  Either way it's a great dish. It makes heaps so make room in your freezer for the left overs or invite the family over for a feed tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I also added some chopped ham

    Submitted by granick on 13. November 2014 - 21:58.

    I also added some chopped ham when I added the chicken meat in Step 3.  I also added 500 grams cooked spiral pasta when I added the mix to the casserole dish and stirred it all through.  Instead of asparagus I used 2 tins corn kernels added when the asparagus was added at the end of step 3 and also 1 cup cream.  You could double the sauce mix instead of adding cream, this is needed as you have made it into a pasta bake not just a mornay and it needs some extra sauce. Everything else was the same.

    We had this for dinner the other night and it was delicious! I only had a little mayo left so made up the remaining weight of it with thickened cream and it worked perfectly. So yummy, thanks.
