I didn't catch the reference to prawns either but I'd totally include them!

Sorry, but I see no reference to (2) cubes.

I just see "Chicken Cubes 1 cup."

I could have sworn that's what I saw. Oh well. BTW, I checked, it still says tubes, not cubes.

But what is a 1 cup of chicken cubes? Is it a whole cup of chicken bouillon cubes?

One of us will have to PM "Savory" and ask what was meant for sure, but I'm pretty sure it means one cup of cubed chicken. That is chicken meat which has been cut into cubes. 1/2" cubes are what I see in most recipes.

It's much too late for the OP to alter the recipe now. Editing is only allowed here for a brief time after posting. 20 minutes I think.

I'm sure he meant cooked chicken, cubed. A cup of chicken bullion cubes would make the recipe inedible IMO.

The directions for the recipe call for sauteing the chicken, so I'm pretty confident that the ingredient list means RAW chicken, cut into cubes for the initial ingredients.

This points out the value of proof reading ones recipes prior to posting them. A simple typo can cause a lot of confusion.

Spell check. It only takes a few seconds. Then a quick proof reading to catch the obvious wrong words like "Tubes" instead of "Cubes".

Oh yeah, I didn't look back. Raw then, or use cooked and skip the saute step.

I've proof read some of my recipes dozens of times and errors still get past. You see what you expect to see, not what is actually there. It's valuable to have somebody other than the author proofread your recipes.

I hear you Greg. I've written papers and re-read them years later and found lots of errors in word usage and spelling. Lately, I've noticed my typing of "and" and "the" are "adn" and "teh". It happens so frequently that it's starting to bother me.

All, sorry for the typo, that's terrible! Sorry for the confusion for you all.

I meant - 1 cup of raw chicken meat, cut into small cubes.

Cut into cubes of 1/2 inch or whichever size you like

Raw is ok, since you will saute it later. But if you have cooked ones bought from supermarket, that's fine too. Just use them directly.

THANKS to Timothy for your PM!
