    I like it, however as a novice, the flour and water become a dough and then won't break down. I am obviously missing something?  -  26 Jan 2012


    I used this recipe to make a gluten, dairy and soya free sauce for chicken!! I also did this in the slow-cooker!! I stuffed the chicken with gluten free stuffing, wrapped in bacon and held it together with cocktail sticks. I then made the stock and added it to the wine and warmed on the hob before adding it to the gluten free flour a bit at a time to make a fairly smooth sauce (I mixed thoroughly with a whisk after each addition!!) I added the sauce and a teaspoon of lazy chopped garlic to my slow cooker pot then placed the chicken parcels in the sauce and cooked on low for 7hrs. It was delicious, although I think the stuffing contradicted the sauce flavours so would do it plain next time!! The sauce thickened up lovely too. Will definitely be doing this again  -  11 Jan 2018


    We enjoyed this recipe, I did add an extra bit of thickener though, as my sauce was a little runny. Lovely flavours. I also added an onion.  -  21 Oct 2015
