“THis recipe was published in a local free magazine and was credited to Lizzie Kocon who is a local chef in Newcastle. Lots of ingredients, but posted as a main meal. Be sure if you are gluten-free that your roast chicken is suitable (Woolworths have started making their deli roast chickens gluten-free). You can vary the ingredients to suit what you have on hand - like swapping kumera for the pumpkin etc”
