My love for Chinese & Indian food led me to try out this lip-smacking chicken recipe. I can guarantee a lovely aroma in your kitchen and its a simple dish done with one pot. Best if you have friends visiting and wanting for a dish with the yum factor. Its our favorite at home and can be paired with simple white rice, you don't need a extra curry to go with it.
Try to make a generous portion as you've find the plate empty and hungry people wanting more :-) I am linking this to hearth & soul blog hop.
Also bloggies I got my first award today from Ambreen (Simply Sweet & Savory), thank you Ambreen I am over the moon :-) you truly made my day, now I have a full tummy and a merry heart :-) :-) :-), thank you sooooooooooooooooooooo much.
