    Sara Westhead's Note:

    A simple way to make this popular restaurant dish at your home. I sort of invented it by experimenting at home and it has become my husbands absolute favourite! If you'd prefer it spicy, just add some crushed red pepper along with the garlic, onion and cumin.

      This was quick and easy but I think the cooking time for chicken needs to be longer than indicated. I used boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts (because I bought the wrong package) and it turned out okay, but I needed to cook the chicken longer. I also couldn't find McCormick's chicken stir-fry seasoning, so I used "sun bird stir fry seasoning" and I added one green pepper. But all in all it is a good quick recipe a middle-of-the-week meal.
