A quick way to prepare chicken. Can be served with fried rice. I sometimes add sweet red peppers for more color and vitamins. Serve on its own or with rice.

Cooked chicken mushrooms peppers and garlic together. Browning the eggplant in a separate skillet is key. Then all together with the spinach...yum! Definitely use coconut or - Read more ...
  2. Exceptionally easy and good! I didn't have any spinach so that was left out but considering how few spices and "additional ingredients" are added the taste is extraordinary! Definitely rates as a winner and a keeper!

  7. Simple quick delicious. Really nice flavor very healthy especially if you cut down on the oils.

  9. This was a simple quick recipe we really enjoyed it. The only problem was it was just a little dry. But all in all a good recipe
