This is a simple quick meal to prepare a great one if your late in from work or you don't want to fuss and you end up with a great tasting meal in the end. I served this along with other Asian dishes we also had vegetable fried rice and ribs. If making as is it would well with just planes steamed rice or what I think is nicer is egg fried rice, but take your pick. I usually top with sliced green onions but I had used them all and hadn't realised so I have listed it in the ingredients below anyway.

Absolutely delicious! I had only 3 chicken breasts, so I added in some carrots and a few broccoli florets otherwise followed the recipe. Next time I think I shall add in a pinch of red chilli flakes. Served it with fried rice, everybody enjoyed it! Thank you, The Flying Chef, for sharing this wonderful recipe, definitely will be making it again!

Very nice! I made as directed but next time I think I will add some red pepper flakes and some carrots. We enjoyed this meal for dinner very much. Thank Natalie! Made for Auz Swap #26.

We made this tonight after a long day travelling. It was fast and delicious and much appreciated thank you Natalie. I used thigh fillets by preference and red onion because it was a 12th of the price of shallots. Like pat I made sure to cook it quite well. My hotplate is a bit slow, so my chicken cooked white rather than browning, but I don't think the flavour was affected at all.
