This is one easy super fast dish to make.
I think you spend more time in cutting the veg and the chicken. The dish is made in 10 minutes .
The recipe is from a book,which I have for long.
It is not my cookbook ,( now it is) my MIL bought them and then she went to her place and was looking through and she remarked holly ..... if I have to make a dish from this book I will need a whol new bunch of ingridients........... so as I am the one who loves cooking in the family, she told me take the book with you, at least you can use them.
And I must admit I have used this book a lot , you should see on some pages there is so much stains.......
Talking about my MIL giving me the book, I have lots of things from her whcih she buys and then for one or another reason I end up in my home with it.
Like my Le Cruset Pot ( which belonged to her and I was once mentioning to her that I should buy one ( this was atleast 17 yrs back) and she told me well I have two take one :-)
then there is the sandwitch maker, the vacuum sealing thing, the knive sharpner .........oh the list will go on and on......oh then the dusting tissues, she buys something new and then she tell, you should try this, it cleans the dust very well and I, ok will take home and try.
I have to admit she is the best MIL one can have, not because she gives me all these things, just because she is a really wonderful person.
