It was good up to when you add the milk and pasta, then it was weird. I'll just do up to that point next time and make the mix into normal fajitas with a bit of salsa and creme fraiche. The milk took about 30 to reduce down and then was a bit curdled with the oil and cheese. Not very nice.

Absolutely delicious! Had to add a little bit more of all the spice quantities but other than that it was great!

Great flavour! Next time I would just add almost double the pasta for a better Quorn to pasta ratio. I also substituted chilli powder for cayenne pepper and added mushrooms.

It was absolutely delicious. I added some more of the spices at the end. The only thing is that when I added the milk, some of the chicken pieces broke down because of the constant stirring. But other than that it was great!
