      This chicken is from heaven! Didn't change a thing - served it with rice, leeks & steamed carrots. The sauce on the rice is wonderful. The aroma while it is cooking wakes up all your senses. We loved it Thanks chia for a winner

      We veganized this by using veggie "chick'n" strips and vegetable broth with a shot of Braggs. It was lovely, although we were surprised by how cinnamon-y it ended up! Thanks, great recipe. :)

      We absolutely loved this. The rice and sauce is perfect as is. Next time I'd saute the chicken until done and skip the simmering. I think it would improve the texture and moisture of the breasts. Thanks, chia.
