Delicious and a wonderful way to use up leftover chicken for a summery dish! I picked this recipe for Zaar World tour II as a way to use up some of the mango chutney I had in back of the fridge and I am so glad I did! We skipped the rice but added the almonds and watercress for a very good Sunday night supper! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
