This was soooo delicious! Would never have thought of smoked salmon & chicken together! Didn't have huge chicken breasts so flattened 5 thin ones and made a sandwich (2 layers of chicken with the filling in the middle) with savoury breadcrumbs on top. Have a photo if anyone wants to see what I mean! Many thanks, Mercy!
