  1. Plate the mashed potato, and add the roasted peppers, place the chicken on top of the peppers and top with the roasted mushrooms and finally top with the bbq sauce. You can also add your own selection of vegetables if you wish.


(1) Any combination of coloured peppers can be used.
(2) Liquid smoke can be obtained in a variety of flavours such as Hickory and Mesquite. Different 'makes' of liquid smoke may have different concentrations of smoke intensity and the quantity used here is for the one illustrated i.e Stubs. I purchased mine online from "Melbury & Appleton". If you have a problem purchasing liquid smoke you can substitute 1½ tspn of smoked paprika.
