Melting Potato lunch


I saw a similar recipe online and thought it was easy enough for even me to try. I didn’t use any fancy potatoes, just the ordinary baking ones. I didn’t make a chicken or vegetable broth; instead I used a chicken cuppa soup. The garlic was not two crushed gloves but yer ordinary sprinkle stuff from a jar. No kosher salt but sea salt. The ingredients weren’t cooked in a metallic tin but a glass flan dish in my halogen cooker. Once the potato mix was cooked, I served it with mixed vegetables, small chicken chunks and two small Yorkshire puddings. It all went down a treat!
