Made this and absolutely loved it. Added a cornflour slurry at the end to thicken it a bit. Served with rice.
Winner winner chicken dinner πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Do you like other spicy sausages of that kind?

Not a Chorizo fan. Could Salami be substituted?

I’m sorry I didn’t see your comment until today Louisa. I would certainly recommend the longer on low if you get the time πŸ™‚ But it can be sped up on high for some of it

Hi Pauline

Short on time today … is it possible to cook 2hrs on high? Or won’t it turn out the same?
Thanks so much again
Louisa 😊

Closer to 3hrs for breast fillets Louisa

Hi my children only like chicken breast. If I used this how long do I cook it for?
Thanks so much

Made this for the family while babysitting last Friday. We had it with basmati rice. So easy and so totally delicious. Thank you.

Loved this recipe, easy to do, added steamed green beans with the olives in the last 30 minutes. Next time thinking of adding some chillie flakes to give a bit more spiciest. Served with rice.

Such a versatile recipe. I used chicken breast and added garlic and green beans. We served this with rice. Was delicious!
