  • Don't try to use instant gravy in this recipe. The ingredients are different to gravy mix.
  • These aren't a pretty colour when they are cooked but the flavour makes up for it.
  • I like to cut a couple of slashes into my chicken legs so the heat can penetrate fully. 
  • I think these would be really nice if you used chicken gravy mix.
