VERY good! I added julienne carrots, and it added a nice flavor. Made WAY too much rice for us. I would cut down on that next time.

I entered this in a work competition. Ok, I got 2nd place but everyone agreed it was extremely good.

Niles and Kira cooked up a whole breast and vedgies from the garden. Yummy!

Loved this dish! The rice was a nice touch, good spice. I had everything on hand except turmeric, which is unfortunate but still tasted delicious! Will make again as my husband loved this dish!
