My upstairs neighbor makes this all the time. Once she let me have a taste and I immediately bullied the recipe off of her.

A very easy recipe to follow - the taste is delicious. I made it as the main course for a dinner-party and took a bit longer than I'd anticipated. Having made it, I'd say it's fine to prepare beforehand and heat up before serving - the leftovers tasted great the next day. The lemon rice works well too. A very tasty meal!
