About this recipe: A fantastically quick chicken dish that is great for using chicken leftover from a roast. You could also get pre-cooked chicken from the supermarket to save time. Serve this with rice or pasta and garden peas.

I made this last night and it was so quick and easy to make and tasted perfect. I didn't have any mushrooms so I used half a red onion and a sweet red pepper. I didn't have any sherry either so added a bit of milk and water and seved with pasta. Everyone loved it, I will certainly make this again, thank you Joan. - 20 Feb 2015


Now let me just say, this recipe is spot on, I grew up with my Father making this once a week and called it by the same name. This recipe tastes exactly the same, great memories. Thank you for sharing this. - 03 Feb 2016
