  • Chicken:
  • Either shred it or cut into small bite sized pieces with bone. We prefer to leave the bone on as we find it turns out much tastier. Approximately 1 kg (for 3 persons), Washed & cleaned
  • Mixed shredded veggies:
  • cabbage, carrots, green capsicums, one large Spanish Onion, one small red Onion quantity. All shredded to fill a large salad bowl
  • sweet corn, a small tin full or more to taste
