This was absolutely delicious! I made a couple deviations in this recipe, but neither of them would have changed it's end result. I sliced my chicken into strips, as I was feeding a crowd, and I fresh ginger and my ginger "pancake" syrup instead of the bottled ginger. I had intended to make rice, to serve as a bed for this dish, until I realized I only had about a Tablespoon of rice left in the bag. Unfazed, DH wrapped his chicken in a flour tortilla and everyone else just ate it as is. Another one going into our Best of 2012 cookbook! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Papa! Made & enjoyed for the June 2012 Cookathon in your memory.
This was so nice! Sweet without being overpoweringly so, and the vegetables add colour and texture. I did cut my chicken into bite-size pieces, this was very much enjoyed as a weekend dinner (tho great for any night of the week!) served this with Papas Turkish Pilaf With Vermicelli (Sehriyeli Pilav), all made in enjoyed in fond memory of Papa D.
