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.

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
