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

We had this for dinner tonight and it was really yummy. It went together very quickly but tasted like I had spent a lot of time preparing dinner. My favorite kind of dinner - easy, quick and delicious! I served this with fresh steamed broccoli and buttermilk mashed potatoes...think we'll probably have this again next week **can't wait** Thank you for sharing.
