Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make a quick dish without marinating or frying the meat!

You don't need a pressure cooker. Put together all the ingredients and simmer. It is so easy.

It was a big success as my husband and 2-year-old boy loved this dish. I just used the usual ingredients I have at home.

They are tasty even when cold. Good for your lunch box.
