      This is excellent. The chicken is so juicy and tender. I loved that there were so many wonderful flavours all melding together to taste great. I didn't use tomatoes due to the salmonalla scare this week but I know they just would have made it even better. I had so many pots on the go that I took the nearly cooked chicken out of the frying pan and put it in a low temp. oven to stay warm and finish cooking. I added olive oil to the pan and cooked my veg in that pan. It worked fine and saved a pan. The beautiful avocado on top made me wish I was a picture taker!! Made for ZWT4. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
