A really delicious meal. I had spring onions so used those instead. In the last 40mins I added cream mixed with cornflour. Yummy dish. Great on a winter. Ishtar in the house of “flu”!

A regular in our house, in fact my 10 year old son makes this for the family. We dont use the flour and dont sautee just throw it all in the cooker with less stock, just enough to cover everything. We have it on a regular basis the kids love it especially with some crunchy croutons. Instead of shredding the chicken we just use a masher and gently crush everything together works really well and you end up with a really chunky thick hearty meal.

I made this last year while dying from the flu. Am sick with a headcold already this year. About to make another batch. Tastes amazing on the dead and suffering tastebuds!
