I really like trying new twists on the usual chicken dish, and this is recipe really hits the spot. My husband was a bit skeptic when he read the recipe, but as soon as I started cooking, he got totally fascinated by the mixture of delightful flavors. He just couldn`t wait to try it and I had that “I knew it” look on my face.
