I watch a British soap called Coronation Street & they always order Hot Pots & make them sound so good. Well if this is what they're eating then it is good! I don't want to think of it yet but this would be really nice on a cold Canadian winter's night. Will make again then. Served with fresh carrots as suggested. True comfort food. Thanks!
Yum. This was good. The gravy was amazing, and the chicken tender. Thanks!
Great dish. My husband loved it and I did as well. The gravy was fantastic. Next time I will steam some rice and pour gravy on it. Thank you so much.
