Used chicken instead of turkey, absolutely gorgeous, yum yum

Delicious! Has anyone tried freezing the turkey nuggets? Do you think they will freeze well?

My husband and I enjoyed it although the turkey looked nothing like the picture! It was more like turkey with melting cheese tops, but I didn't have enough parmesan so I used 2 tbsp parmesan and 1 tbsp Romano chesse and I guess my parmesan grating wasn't exactly fine. I think the Romano cheese added much to the taste plus I had the turkey seasoned some days back. I loved the chips, so easy and tasty

Thoroughly enjoyed by my son & myself. I made my chips using sweet potato just for something a bit different & they tasted great too.

Love this dish! best thing about it is you're eating naughty food but done healthily and not in excess, so all the goodness without the guilt!

a great meal that the whole family enjoyed! I can't eat garlic so I swapped it for herbs de provence and the result was lovely and rustic, especially liked the chips!
