Delicious and quick. I used 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts that were butterflied and then flattened somewhat for even cooking. Chicken stock replaced the white wine and plain yogurt was used instead of heavy cream. The chicken was served with steamed brocolli. This is a quick and delicious dish that I can see myself making again. Made for Aussie Swap.

Excellent dish! So easy to make, but extremely flavourful. I used almond cream instead of cow's milk cream, and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing!

So easy to make that it qualifies as a midweek meal. Tasty and very enjoyable. I used Smoked Pararika, cause that is all I had in pantry and used boned out thighs and drumsticks as I prefer them to chicken breast which can tend to be a bit dry and chewy especially when frying. Made and enjoyed for the Ausssie / Kiwi Swap April 2012.
