    A great dish for late lunches on weekends. I used thigh pieces (bone in), added some garlic and it was delicious. Will definitely be sharing this one around. Thanks for sharing it with us!  -  16 May 2016


    this has become a family favourite. I usually substitute the chicken leg to breast meat. I have been asked for the recipe on several occasions. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.  -  29 Apr 2013
