“i made this from leftover roast chicken and leftover leek and potatoe soup (vegan), so my measurements are an estimate really, but use your initiative if it needs more water add more etc etc. intermediate cooks will get the idea, also you can add a dash of wine or lemon juice would be nice in this. The old lady (lillian) who we used to look after used to add a tin of campbells condensed chicken soup to her stew, you would do this, one day ill out on her roast chicken casserole and roast pheasent.”
