I think this was delightful. I give a five star rating

Very easy to make and yummy too

I put chicken into this recipe as a little flavour enhancer. My 6 month old didnt like it too much but my cat and I thought it was delicious! Great recipe!


Everyone loved it

This was a great recipe and the whole family enjoyed it, I would advise adding slightly more icing but it may depend the size of the pan.

Very Yummy!

Just love this recipe, hubby took some to work for his mates the first time I made it! Consider doubling the recipe for a larger tin. Very simple but delicious!

My family always love it when i make this recipe. I often make a batch and a half to get the right size for a full baking tray. One of my favourites and so easy to make

Consider doubling the topping quantities in order to get a decent thickness of topping.

:) yummy!
