This was truly delicious! Given the instructions, though, I made a few adjustments, and will learn from them next time. I used boneless, skinless chicken pieces (since I don't care for chicken on the bone). Given that the amount of potatoes was not stated, I used 4 medium California white potatoes. The amount of salt was too much, and I would use only a teaspoon next time. I assumed the potatoes would absorb the salt, but I apparently did not use enough potatoes. However, the other spices were perfect. I will definitely be making this again. Made for ZWT6 Zingo.
Used fresh tomatoes and ginger-love fresh ginger. We were satisfied with the sauce amount. I added green beans, no potatoes, but think sweet potato or yam would be very good in this. I see that you originally had this in your Asian cookbook and can understand why. Served over rice. Thank you Elaniemay for sharing. Made for ZWT6 Zingo by an Unruly Under the Influence.

My Family and I moved to South Africa at the beginning of 2007 to be missionaries. My Husband is the Pastor of a church in Eden Park, a township in the Jo'burg area. We are having a great time. My kids love it (3 of them, 1 born here). We have got to do many exciting things( pet lion cubs, feed giraffes, eat Zebra(gross!)and other meats(Warthog was surprisingly the best, go figure) and swim on a beach with penguins, to name a few). I have always loved to bake but just got into cooking since moving over here. There were a lot of things I couldn't find over here(and still can't) that we were wanting so I started searching for good recipes for everything from sausage, salad dressing and root beer,to enchilada sauce, Macayo's baja sauce(posted), and Applebees hot wings! A fellow missionary turned me on to this site and My husband got me a membership for this last birthday. I am loving it!
