4. Meanwhile fry some fries and layer at the bottom of an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over salt and slather in mayo and chilli sauce of choice (I use Franks or Crystal Sauce).
5. Pour the chicken evenly over the fries and sprinkle over grated mozerella and cheddar cheese. Bake in the oven till cheese melts.

Note: this is a great way to use up leftover chicken tikka or any chicken masala curry.
