Get as creative as you like by adding additional layers to suit your family's taste.  Omit the chicken for a vegetarian dish & try layers of sliced mushrooms or left-over roasted veges or pesto. 

Kids love to get involved building the layers - and they're more likely to eat what they have helped to prepare!

    YUM! I made this tonight for my family and my parents. It was loved by all (including my 5 and 3 year olds).

    The only change I made to this dish was omitting the avocado layers as my husband isn't super keen on it and I cut the chicken into pieces rather than shredding.

    Thanks for such a yummy recipe! It will definately be a regular in our household!
