Chicken & Mushroom in a Creamy Sundried Tomato Sauce (no cream!) 

I don’t know about you, but I sometimes get bored or run out of things to do with chicken fillets/breasts. I love them a variety of ways, grilled on skewers, stuffed with cheese, baked in casseroles.

Ramadan2017-Iftar: Chickpea & Lentil Patties w/Caramelised onion
