    Ridiculously easy and very tasty. I only get little scallops here, so just used 8 and didn't cut (just for me). I also cut up a chicken breast for my housemates. Cooked chicken first and then did the scallops right at the last minute. Everyone enjoyed, I thought the taste with the scallops was wonderful.

    I have some very happy people at home tonight. Made this as written and even the friend (who is on his chilli training wheels) loved it. My scallops were already small, so I used 45 pieces and didn't bother cutting them in half lengthwise. The balance of flavours is perfect, and you can be sure I will make this often. Served with your Recipe #116367 rather than rice. Great meal!
