Sounds yummy - I will be making this for dinner tonight as I have some chicken in the fridge that I must use and until now, no idea what to do with it! Thanks x

I hope you enjoy it, Anon. Make sure to leave all the white pith out - it gives a very bitter taste if you don't.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
