  1. Skinless Chicken Thigh Fillets cost a fortune, as does liquid Chicken Stock. Neither are budget options…. Change to Chicken Drumsticks poached with veg in water, makes homemade chicken stock without added costs, shred meat of bones and return to the pot . Love your website Pauline so I hope you don’t mind my penny pinching option.

    1. It cost me less than $15 for a meal for up to 8 serves …. chicken thigh fillets were $8 for the kilo …. chicken stock was liquid yes but made from stock cubes lols so certainly NOT expensive …. so I disagree … I think $1.87 per serve is plenty budget enough 😀
      I have heaps of other recipes using chicken wings. This one was fillets by deliberate choice 🙂

  2. Everyone enjoyed this but I found that I needed a good spoonful of chicken stock powder extra as the flavour was a little bland. I also needed to thicken with 3 heaped teaspoons of cornflour with a little water to make a paste as the “sauce” was way too liquid for my family’s liking. I just served it in bowls with crusty bread rolls.
