added another tweak:i made this again and fried the chicken pieces in a little oil and then added 1 tbsp of dark soy sauce......the soy sauce gave the chicken a nice colour and flavour! - 03 Sep 2011


I thought that this was lovely as did my 5 year old daughter.....hubby on the other hand's not keen on 'dry''rice' had to make him some curry sauce!lol!I made a slight change to the recipe...i sprinkled the chopped chicken with a little 'Thai 7 Spice' before i fried it for that bit extra made all the difference! - 06 Jul 2011
