Cooks Tips

- To save time, buy the chicken already diced from the butchery section. Ask for 450-500 grams of diced meat. - Gruyere cheese has a lovely nutty flavour and is ideal for melting. It is the traditional cheese to use with schnitzels when they're served "a la Cordon Bleu". Other good melted alternatives include Edam, Gouda or colby.
