  1. Hi Vicki, thanks for sharing your SW friendly recipes I cooked this at the weekend and might I say it was very tasty too.

    I'm looking forward to cooking this again for friends.

  2. Love this recipe, thanks for sharing.

    Really tasty and makes a change for me to have something other than chicken!!

    I add egg noodles into mine for the last 20 minutes as an alternative to the rice.
