Once upon a time there was a man who had a secret recipe that turned chicken into the best meal in the world. Despite his ability to make chicken taste so wonderful that people salivated at the mere mention of his name, he had yet to earn a penny.

Okay folks, well it’s time for the fun that is Friday Fictioneers ….! Ta Da! Once again I’d like to say a huge thank you to the amazing Ms Rochelle for organising the event. If anyone is new to the capers, then you really do need to head on over to her place at Addicted to Purple and find out how to join in.

The usual rules apply, the copyright is Janet’s and shouldn’t be used in any context other than this without her express permission. And so, on to my contribution itself…
I thought I’d try something a little different for this particular tale. I decided to see what would happen if I made it into different formats. At the end of this post you can read the tale itself, but I’ve also created a video and slideshare presentation too. It would be great if you’d let me know what you think of them.
