    1. Mix the ginger into the diced chicken until thoroughly combined; set aside. Pour 100ml water into a large frying pan. Bring to the boil over high heat, then stir in the chicken. Cook and stir until the liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Pour the beetroots and remaining water into the pan along with the mushrooms and onion. Continue cooking and stirring until the liquid has evaporated once again, about 5 minutes more.

    Am cooking it at the mo. Gave it three stars as it doesn't say what to serve it with.  -  02 Sep 2013


    We love beets, and at only 167 calories per serving, I couldn't pass this up. I added garlic, salt and pepper, but it still could have used some more flavor. Also, the presentation is sort of strange. Everything is pink, that's for sure. And, since the chicken is cut up into pieces, I actually couldn't tell the difference between the chicken and the mushrooms on my plate. Next time I make this (and I will make it again, for sure), I'll leave the chicken breasts whole and saute the chicken, mushrooms, and onions with the spices before adding the beets, and maybe skip the juice. Overall, tasty recipe! Four stars for creativeness and taste, three stars for presentation.  -  25 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was an awesome recipe. I also didn't cut the chicken up small. I cut the chicken in chunks and added the beets last so the entire dish did not go pink. For more flavor, I added ginger, dill, basil a bit of coconut powder and a can of cream of mushroom soup for a more saucier dish (to serve with rice). It was a big hit.  -  03 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
