    Oh yes, we liked this! I had a houseful of young people, so this was a good dish to serve, goes a long way, and whats not to like! I had to use ground chicken (all I had), and so the colour contrast wasn't marvellous, I was busy sticking to recipe, but another time I would put in a cup each of frozen peas and frozen corn, which I think would just turn this into a fabulous one-dish meal! I did also add a chicken stock cube to this, I just felt it needed a little seasoning, and I am generally not a salt lover. Could have been because I was using chicken rather than beef, though. Thank you, mailbelle, a very good dish for hungry tummies! Made for Aus/NZ swap#33
