Today I was busy packing and was just not in the mood for any elaborate cooking. One quick look at the pantry and I saw chicken and a whole lot of coriander leaves. So that's it..... Decision made. It's going to be Coriander Chicken. No recipe books, no TV shows,no net browsing, not even my diary...... Just went along the way and added whatever I felt like. After tasting, D gave a thumbs up and said "Mama, it tastes different and I liked it a lot". Even I was pretty happy with the result. :) Its a quick to make recipe and tastes yummy too
