This is a great recipe! The tartness of the lemon against the chili and cream is lovely, have made it over and over.

Always good never bothered with the cream. Them Quorn bits soak up the lemony goodness like a sponge

Used cream cheese instead of cream and added petit pois for sweetness. Finished with toasted pinenuts. Delicious


5 out of 5 stars

Delicious fresh testing recipe and really quick to make. Good balance of a little bite from the chilli, garlic and pepper and that freshness from the lemon and basil. The Quorn pieces have a very similar texture to chicken and absorb the flavours well.

Really enjoyed this recipe..will definately be cooking it again .I did a half spoon of chilli flakes instead of a fresh chilli..a bit too much but still tasty ..will use fresh next time ...
