    Hi Felicity,
    Tried for the first time tonight. WOW bags of flavour for such small effort. Family of 3 all loved it. Thanks so much! Need to spread this to more sc enthusiasts.

    I’ve never tried freezing this one Trish, not sure how the mushrooms would go.

    You could dump bag the chicken, bacon, onion and garlic

  3. Made this tonight and was delsih!! Served with rice and corn on the cob. Didnt have baby potatoes so just put in diced potatoes instead.

  4. I was also a bit skeptical about the taste, but it was delicious. I didn’t have chicken stock power, only a cube, so used one of those. There was a fair bit of liquid and, rather than putting cornflour in, we just cooked up some rice and mixed it through – delish. Definitely a hidden gem.
