Delicious. Will make this again! It is a shame I couldn't find the Wattie's frozen casserole mix at any supermarket.

AWESOME RECIPE, I swapped the casserole vegies for the chunky mixed vegies and added extra drumsticks some fresh veggies including gold kumera, cauliflower, chopped into small pieces. It was so popular that the dog ate my chicken, he loved it, I loved the vegetables and sauce. No complaints from anyone in the house only compliments.

In lockdown , only had stir fry Veges so put them in half way through cooking time. Yummy . Oh yes did put in sliced button mushrooms in after cooking bacon. Still yummy .
