I have experimented with this until I'm finally happy with it... no, delighted with it. I use chicken breasts because it saves the hassle of picking out the bones, bonus time saver. It makes a great chicken basis for fillings such as: chicken pastry pies, chicken ragout, chicken pasta and chicken potato dishes, and if followed until Step 9, also for my Chicken lasagne recipe... I use this to get great healthy and hearty flavour without too much time and effort. It makes a lot, but it freezes well.. if it ever gets that far because it never takes long to disappear ! My not-so-fussed-on-chicken-DH actually likes this too. The recipe is so much easier and illogically, faster... if you start it the night before (I have this on while I'm cooking dinner, then let it cool, refrigerate the lot overnight and next day all you have to do is discard any fat and the rest is easyville) If you have spring onions or leeks or zucchini that need using then throw them in as well. The instructions are long, but mega easy. Cooking time includes overnight refrigeration time. ZWT REGION: The Netherlands.
