Peel and cut your potatoes into thick slices and boil until soft. Once cooked drain and set aside. It doesn't matter if they start to go cold as they will be heat up when the bake goes in the oven later.
While the potatoes are cooking cook your chicken. Personallly I use a George Forman as it cooks them in around 12mins but cooking them under the grill works ust as well. One your chicken is throughly cooked cut into smally bite size chunks and cover and set aside.
Whilst the chicken and potatoes are cooking clean and cut your leek and broccoli. The leek can be covered and set aside for now but the broccoli need to be part boiled this I reccomend doing as your chicken isn't far from beig cooked as it only needs 5mins or so from boiling.
Following the instuctions of the packets of cheese sauce make up their contents in a pyrex jug.
In a oven proof dish mix the leek, the cooked chicken and part cooked broccoli so they cover the base of the dish. Add a little pepper over the top if you wish then cover the 2/3 of the cheese sauce. On top of this layer your potatoes the over the top of the chicken and spread over the additonal cheese sauce.
Generously grate the cheese of your choice over the top of the potatoes and cook in the oven on gas 4 for around 20-30 or until the cheese goes golden.
