couldnt think of anything worse than a chicken chilli - it just sounds so wrong (never tried it mind lol)

this won the £1000 weekly prize I think and I have made it and was one of the best easy cook curries I've ever made

this sounds good.What is this best served with?
:thinking:

Curry but that's obvious........butterfly cut them so they are twice the size but still joined , fry up a stuffing of onions,peppers, chilli, garlic and mushrooms spread it on the chicken, roll them up wrap in foil and bake for about an hour.
