    I would really like to try this recipe but my husband doesn't like lamb - could I use Chicken instead and would the cooking time etc. be exactly the same?

    Delgirl cooked this for us the other evening and it was absolutely delicious!!!! I'm going to make it for DH this weekend.

    This is such a delightful dish! It makes the most of the exotic flavours and produces such a tender meat that is only possible with slow cooking.
