This meal was inspired by one of my husband’s favorite dishes that he ate while he was in Australia. They call this a half-chicken hot pack. I am not going to lie, I was a little hesitant at first. I never would have thought to put these things together! It is always so fun to try new dishes, especially the ones that he brought home with him from the Outback.
One whole rotisserie chicken, cooked
peas and carrots
1 packet brown gravy mix
Cut the chicken in half along the breast using kitchen shears. Each person should get a wing, breast, and leg on their half of the chicken. Prepare the French fries and peas and carrots like you usually would. Prepare the gravy according to the instructions on the packet.
To assemble the hot pack, take a serving of the French fries and put a spoonful of the peas and carrots on top of them. Then top this with the gravy.
It’s that easy! It was fun to assemble and even more fun to eat! The flavors work really well together and it is something different to add to your rotation of meals!
