Chicken, broccoli and blue cheese hotpot

Chicken again, but fancied something we don't have every week - remembered the dolcelatte in the fridge - and leeks, mushrooms and broccoli in the veg box.  Chopped leeks and mushrooms, sauteed off in olive oil with some garlic, added bite sized chicken pieces to fry off a bit, then a tablespoon of flour to thicken sauce.  Stir in until it has mixed with the oil, add broccoli florets, and chicken stock.  Meanwhile parboil potatoes.  When the chicken and veg have cooked down a bit take off the heat, and stir in a good sized piece of dolcelatte.  Transfer to baking dish, slice potatoes and layer on top - drizzle on olive oil.  Bake for 30 minutes in hot oven.  Slice courgette and dredge in herbed, seasonned flour, shallow fry in olive oil for a couple of minutes on each side - drain on kitchen paper.  Boil frozen peas - as victim will complain about courgettes.  Was well tasty.  Victim was forced to have 3 slices of courgette, and made the hotpot into a sandwich - but declared it "so horrid I have to have seconds so that there are no leftovers".... hmmmm
