Author's Comments

this chicken is actually two recipes combined initially as an experiment, but now as a really tasty casserole. i suppose you could say this comes from New Zealand, though indirectly. this might look like a lot of effort, but really it's just the long list of ingredients and is definitely worth it putting in the effort. if you would like it to have a bit more of a kick, just add some of your favourite chilli spice flavourings.
