  • Tweaks from my friend Sarah,

    Tweaks from my friend Sarah, who cooked this tonight.  "I doubled the chicken mix and it made 6 x 1 cup ramekins. I single batch of the sauce was more than enough.  I also blitzed the celery first.... Absolutely awesome.  Great way to use up old celery too. I had a BBQ chicken and kept the breast meat aside for sandwiches tomorrow and used the rest for this dish. So it worked out very economically too."  Sarah, this recipe has been sitting unloved in the recipe community for a couple of years, but you have made my night with this feedback.  Thank you so much!
