“Sounds cool, right? I loved the name, though I havent had a chance to try it yet, especially after the great stuff I heard after making mango chicken. Arggh :) Anyways, hope u enjoy it! It is from the "Weekend" magazine. It is said to be a great "busy" family dinner. Its easy, fast, fun and the flavours are great. You can substitute all or half of the chicken with tofu(bean curd). Serve this with steamed broccoli and brown rice for a filling delicious dinner.”
