this is a bit of work, a bit of babysitting but the results.....omg are soo worth it!! Please DO pay attention to the roux! I got it successfully(!) to a beautiful caramel color. The only thing I would do differently is to use chicken parts with out rib bones....picking out small bones got in the way of shoveling big mouthfuls. ;) i did make the meatballs & they are fabulous! We absolutely loved this. I highly recommend that everyone should find a day & create this masterpiece! made for 2/11 aussie/nz swap.
