When I first saw this recipe I didn't believe that I could make this meal as easily and in the allotted time that it said. Much to my surprise it was incredibly easy and the timing was accurate. This was a delightful meal and I loved all the variations in flavor. I cannot wait to make this 4 star recipe again.
