    Used different ingredients. I read a review of this recipe which claimed it was very bland. Looking through the ingredients, I could see why... no seasoning, plain ingredients. So I set about spicing it up a bit. Chopped chorizo added to the bacon created a woody flavour to the oil.I removed the bacon and chorizo then put the red pepper, a finely chopped onion and a couple of cloves (chopped) in to the same pan, frying until the onion is soft and clear. I removed the onion then fired the chicken til slightly golden then put the bacon, chorizo, onion and garlic back in the pan. Some celery salt and 'Italian herbs' - mostly basil and oregano. Then a little paprika. and tomato puree. I grated a little parmesan into the cheese sauce. Finally, over the top of the sauce I put breadcrumbs and paprika with some small knobs of stilton. Over the top?? Nope. It was great!  -  20 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
