I tried this recipe simply because I was searching for any chicken recipe, and the name just looked wonderful!
It was served to two hungry teenage boys, and was an instant success - 4 portions almost instantly devoured - and the vegetarian of the house even tried the sauce!
No doubt not the most slimming thing around, but brilliant winter food, and let's face it, teenage boys don't slim :)
Absolutely brilliant, and definitely to be repeated.
