chicken breast should take 20 - 25 minutes to cook remember there is a fine line between cooked and over cooked , prawns like most seafood is better cooked medium - well , U10 / U8 are industry sizes and they are a decent size stands for10 / 8 prawns per pound (500g)
bbqing need a little oil but to much is as bad as none at all

This is just the thing I have been looking for and I love the presentation....I know that you have the stock/cream sauce but what else have you used sauce/flavouring have you used around the outside? Pesto maybe and ?? Will try this at the weekend.
