Cooked this last night... quick, easy and very tasty. I did use frozen peas instead of fresh shelled. Still very good!

I remember watching Neil do this one on Fresh and fast with his mate Armando, and it looked bloody awesome. I'm yet to cook it myself. But it will be coming soon, to a kitchen near me.

recipe sounds yummy, but pretty gross watching Neil smooth his hair, then handle raw chicken, then smooth his hair again - don't think I could eat at his restaurant.
