“I just had a hankering for chicken and french onion soup flavour and came up with this... It's one of my 'crud in the cupboard' recipes which always turn out really good. but you have to enjoy them because i never remember how I did them, so you won't ever have them again. Just make it up from what you have in your cupboard at the time. I used an electric wok with a lid with this recipe. Whatever utensil you use, use the lid so that the liquid does not evaporate too quickly. Try not to taste test using a ladel cause it's that good, you will eat the lot before you are ready to serve.”
