Hubby said 3 I said 5 split it giving a 4. Used 800 gms of chicken, 2 chillies (1 deseeded) - chillies rated 10 on the hot scale - will cut back to 1 chilli, for me okay but rest of family said as tasty as it was just a tad to hot. Also used a mixture of garlic chives, oregano, basil and parsley. Will definately be trying again.
