Top Review by Karen Elizabeth

Easy to prepare and very good, served on rice with green beans and a tomato bake, this was an excellent supper. I'm sorry my photo doesn't do it justice! I cut my chicken into bite-sized pieces, they were flavoursome and tender in the delicately flavoured sauce. Very nice, thank you hope2day! Made for PAC Fall 2009
