Hi Donna, Ive made this in the past and it came out perfect as per recipe.
This time, I used chicken thigh fillets and it wasnt cooked even after 35min.
This time I used chicken stock cubes in hot boiled water Added to the cream instead of cold stock added to the cream. Is that why the sauce didnt come together and instead separated and curdled?
Has anyone used thigh fillets? And do you add cold stock or hot temp stock?
Lovely flavour, however Marylands is a cut I really do not like so I am substituting it with chicken breast fillets which are much easier to eat.
I have made this recipe about 5 times and it never fails to disappoint. It’s a winner, easy to make and delicious flavors with the paprika and fennel. 5/5 from me!
I got this recipe from one of DH mag and now its a weekly dish. Absolutely magical and so easy to make. Xx
