Top Review by Gerry

If you love chicken and rice this comes together for a wonderful meal. Delicious! I have to thank Liara for being so helpful when I e mailed her for some advice in the making. I made as posted - started with two tablespoons of fish sauce - and yes Liara three is good even for the uninitiated! I want to try this with chicken breasts. Thank you Liara for a recipe that will be used again and again.
