  1. I had a hot BBQ chook (ok, chicken for all you non-Aussies!) so did it all and then added the pulled poultry just prior to serving.. It was absolutely totally delicious and have shared the recipe with vegan grand-daughter. Thanks heaps for a new idea with our favourite flesh.

    1. Hi Janet! Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback – we are happy you enjoyed the recipe!:)

    1. Hi Lin! Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. In my experience, one serving was just about 2 cups per person. Hope that clears things up for you. Let me know how it turns out if you do give it a try! 🙂
