Here I was,tired of the same old ways of making chicken. I wanted something easy, simple and different.
With this dish you can change it up a bit to make it more Italian. You can omit the soy sauce and the white wine and use Merlot instead. Add a dash of Balsamic vinegar and make a light sauce.
If making the Asian version, serve with rice, couscous or noodles. The Italian version can be served with garlic bread or pasta.
Using other vegetables is also recommended:
- Bok Choi
- Red onions for colour
For a totally vegetarian mean substitute the chicken for tofu.
