I used already cooked and shredded chicken, so i just sauted the veggies (used fresh mushrooms and added an onion), added the tom paste, stock and chicken then simmered. Served with rice and it was soooo good.

I increased the recipe by half and used 2 large chicken stock cubes with 3 cups of water. It was absolutely delicious and very easy to make. Thanks for the great recipe!

Easy and delicious. However, I recommend following the amounts as listed because I added too much liquid. It's perfect without any changes.
