I’ve made things from this book before, and although it seems a little unassuming they’ve usually turned out ok. I was making dinner for my neighbours and needed something fairly wholesome but filling. This recipe seemed appropriate. I used turkey instead of chicken.
Having made it up the night before I shoved what was now quite an appealingly marinated bowl of turkey and celery into the oven and promptly forgot it was there and got on with overcooking the side dishes. This meant everything was slightly overcooked. I think I got away with it though.
The bit that spoiled it was adding the cream. I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten anything that shade of puce before. It wasn’t horrid, but I’d have preferred it without the cream.
Also, frying cashew nuts is weird. They went all soft.
