Recipe tips
  • Works well with strips of turkey, beef or pork or use prawns or chunks of salmon.
  • For a vegan version, use tofu in place of chicken.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Defrost in the fridge or microwave and reheat thoroughly until piping hot throughout.
