Loved it - as did one of my fussy eater daughters! She wanted it the following evening too! Added extra liquid as advised but tasty and easy. Will be having it again no doubt!

Forgot to add that I did add a bit more stock taking it to a total of 500ml but I did add extra ingredients , so think it balanced out.
