This is a fabulous, quick, and tasty meal for a family of four. I love the slow burn of the chili peppers, the balance between all the flavors is nice. It's a convenient dish to make cause it takes just a one large saucepan, and about 30 minutes. And the leftovers are easy to heat up, or eat cold, as the case might have been over here.. It's easy to make this into a vegetarian version, just leaving the chicken out, but I that case I would be using vegetable stock instead water, to bring a bit more flavor into the dish. I hope you enjoy ~ Cheers!
