  1. Why do you have to line the pan with foil ?

    1 REPLY
    • Don’t have foil touching food cooking. Aluminium absorbed. Stored in brain causing Alzheimer’s long term. Use Gladbake to stop it sticking. Liquid amount in pic doesn’t match volume in ingredients.

  2. I will certainly be trying this. It is great when you get a new recipe and you have all the ingredients already.

  3. Where is the shown amount of liquid coming from? I am wondering if it also has chicken stock or white wine or something else?
