Chicken Mug Pie

Remember back in the day when all microwaves did was defrost and make stuff hard in the middle? Now they can pretty much prepare a gourmet meal for you with the touch of a button. It is probably one of my most favourite advancements in technology. 

My regular readers will know how much I dislike cooking, especially dinner. For the most part my family get meals  I can cook in minutes or throw in one pot/pan/dish.

If the older kids are able to prepare the meal by themselves then this is first prize! This Chicken Mug Pie may just be the winner because it ticks all the boxes!

Cape Town peeps, this is a nice recipe for you guys because it uses minimal dishes.
