Did I read this recipe correctly? It says to reuse marinade from raw chicken and then just heat it for 2-3 minutes! That seems like a very bad idea.
I just tried this today but since I didn't have the veggies in it, I added asparagus and mushrooms and it was super yummy!!! Thank you for sharing it. :)
Very easy recipe. I used precooked chicken that I had in the freezer, marinated it for 5 hours then added it with the marinade to the celery & carrots that had cooked for 4 minutes,,warmed the chicken & sauce for 3 minutes, added the brocolli cooked covered for 2 minutes. added 1 tsp chili flakes and 2 tbsp Marsala. Finally the pea pods for the last 2 minutes - The pods were lovely and crisp. Served with basmati rice. Excellent dinner thanks luminajd
