  1. One of our faves for sure! ๐Ÿงก
    I literally just shredded/froze 40lbs of carrots with this recipe in mind ๐Ÿ˜‹
    I use canned chicken: even simpler, still delicious! Never any leftovers; thanks for the recipe!

  2. I’ve made this twice now for our game group and there are never any leftovers. Thank you for the delicious recipe!! I usually top it with panko for a little extra crunch.

    I made this recipe and it was really good, so thank you so much for it! I used chicken breast as that’s what I had in my freezer, but I didn’t have any onion ๐Ÿ˜’ so added some frozen pepper slices instead (I looked in the store last week for another pack of sliced onions cos I was out but there were plenty of sliced mushrooms and some sliced peppers but alas no onions so I have had to make do without!) I also added some grated cheese on top for the last 5 mins of cooking and that was tasty! I can see me making this one again!

  4. I saw this in your video and I’m going to put it on the menu this week!!
