I have made this one a few times for my daughter who can’t eat dairy and egg but the whole family loves it and you can’t even tell there is no dairy in it. Great recipe and I didn’t even add the egg.

You could leave it out no worries 🙂

Will this still work if I don’t add the egg? My daughter is dairy and egg free.

The breast and thigh time won’t need to change Alice the same will be fine 🙂 The egg, because it’s whisked and being added to the hot dish will cook almost instantly when it hit the hot meal. The few minutes it would take to serve will see it cooked no worries 🙂

Hi, I’m wondering how using breast instead of thigh would affect the cooking time? Also, is the egg essentially raw in there? No extra cooking time with the egg?

If the dairy free part isn’t important sure you could
You could even add some coconut essence to get the same flavour still

Can I use cooking cream instead of coconut cream?

I added 250g mushrooms, and substituted coconut milk for the coconut cream because it’s what I had in the cupboard.
Turned out perfectly! Really delicious, my partner loved it too.
Got six portions out of it, so it’s good for the budget.

I love his recipe and sondo the kids. I add mushrooms at the start and stir in some baby spinach towards the end.
