I substituted the chicken with Quorn chicken pieces and added asparagus. Lovely recipe

My husband LOVES this! I too have slightly amended the recipe to make more sauce (basically more mayo, mustard and honey) It's also great as a lunch for the following day.

My family love this dish, we have made it on various different occasions including BBQ'S and everyone has raved about how tasty this recipe dish is. It so quick and simple, though I would agree that a larger quantity of sauce is needed!

This is really great for packed lunch, dinner and picnic food, i used it for all three. Second time I made it i used low fat creme fraiche which was still really tasty and lower in fat.

I made this, put it in a tupperware and took to the beach instead of the usual sandwiches - lovely.

ideal for using leftover roast chicken - agree with others that need to do more sauce than in the recipe or would be too dry.

Love this recipe Jane, and note that you specify low fat mayo........could you take this a stage further and print calorie and fat content per 100 grams.................this would so help us foodie fans trying to eat well and healthily,

enjoy your recipes, magazine and web site.
thanks for tips, recipes and all advice

Will try with roasted peppers. Agree with sauce comment - more required. Good weekday meal though.

Thought this was a good mid-week meal but had to make more sauce as my partner felt it was a little dry.
