This was really quite tasty. This was very easy to fix and despite very few ingredients, came out full of flavor. I used a red and a yellow bell pepper, so I added a pinch of salt as I sauteed them (which took maybe 10 minutes). This looked very pretty on the table too.I will make this regularly whenever I am serving roasted chicken.

UmmmmUmmmmm good! We are garlic lovers so I added an extra clove and used my favorite, Basmati rice. What a great combination of flavors and easy to prepare. We will make again...and again....and again. Thanks for sharing!

My family really quite liked this dish, even my fussy son! I used 1 red and 1 yellow bell pepper and also thingly sliced a sweet onion and fried that up as well. Lovely flavours and looked great. This one is a keeper. Thanks for posting.
