Chicken in a creamy cider sauce

I first had this in a low fat ready meal which was so nice I wanted to try and recreate it.  The low fat creme fraiche gives it that creamy consistency without all the calories.  For those following Weight Watchers each serving is 11 points, and if you are serving with rice it is 17 points.  The recipe serves 2 and this is what you need:
  • 2 Chicken breasts, diced (1 per person)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 10 button mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 250ml cider (I used a still cider but i don't think it would make much of a difference if it was the fizzy variety!)
  • 1 chicken oxo cube
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons half fat creme fraiche
  • Salt and pepper to season
1) First fry off the chicken, onion and mushrooms in a pan until the chicken is cooked. 

2) Crumble the oxo cube over the mixture and then add the cider.  Add the mustard and then stir to make sure everything is mixed in.  Leave to simmer for ten minutes to allow the alcohol to cook off and the sauce to reduce slightly.

3) Add the creme fraiche and simmer for a further 5 minutes.  Then add the parsley and season to taste.

I served mine with some mustard mash.  It doesn't look the prettiest but by 'eck lass it's tasty :-)
