    Submitted by Fiona Volke on 22. April 2016 - 20:36.

    YUM! I made a 2/3 serving of this with Moghrabieh Couscous (kinda like large balls of couscous) and it was just divine. I live by myself and it saves really well in the fridge, giving me a scrumptious, effortless lunch/dinner for a couple of days. Happy days!

    Wow! This is a fantastic recipe! Absolutely beautiful. Perfect for my family which consists of two shift workers and small children. Quick, easy and nutritious! I chopped my chicken and the apple in the thermo but that was just personal choice! This will be a regular in our family! Thank you!

    This was the perfect meal after a terribly hot day in Brisbane. No oven, no cooktop and everyone enjoyed it!
