  • An interesting mix of aromas

    An interesting mix of aromas and tastes. This recipe could do with re-write. Some instructions were not clear. For example clearly state chicken goes into veroma dish. Used chicken legs, cooked well with this timing. I also added fresh lime juice that I needed to use up.

    Seemed to be some steps missing in this recipe, I guessed maybe you steamed the chicken tried that but was too much and didn't cook well so put in bowl and reversed speed and cooked well, i also added French onion soup to try and thicken it as was too runny for my liking, otherwise enjoyed the flavour, all family said they liked it.
