A super quick easy recipe for mid week for when DH has to attend a meeting and we have to eat early. We did find it a little bland though so would add some more garlic and maybe some chilli. At DH's request I doubled the chicken and omitted the capsicum but otherwise made as per recipe, thank you Tisme, made for Make My Recipe.

Very easy & tasty. I made as written but couldn't see spring onions in the ingredients so left them out. I think if you wanted you could use cream in place of the evaporated milk if you weren't concerned about the fat content. A 'keeper' in my book. Made for Auz/NZ swap June 2010 :)
