    Altered ingredient amounts. I would actually recommend only using the juice of a quarter of the lime and then add more later if you feel necessary so the lime doesn't overpower the rest of the ingredients. Sorry, I don't know how to edit the recipe.  -  10 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Used different ingredients. Lovely dish, I marinated the chicken in half sesame oil half soy sauce and red bell peppers first. I used coconut cream and creme fresh and added extra veg was delicious!  -  29 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Was very easy to make, although my sauce didn't go as liquid as the picture shows so no flour was needed to thicken. I'm vegetarian, so used quorn fillets instead of chicken and it was lovely. Very quick, filling, and my 4 year old ate it!!!  -  05 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
