    Altered ingredient amounts. Used a whole lime and twice the garlic--but we tend to like things that pop with flavour! I also added a can of mushrooms which were sauteed with the chicken.  -  22 Mar 2011


    This recipe is delicious! I had mine with savoury rice and yoghurt sauce. Had to swap the coriander for sage as I forgot to buy it but was so tasty regardless.  -  01 Aug 2015
