There is nothing quite like quickly whipping up a a dinner and putting it into the pressure cooker when time is of the essence!

I usually make this in a big pot, but it was just as delicious and far quicker this way.

There are so many complimentary flavours in this dish and it is a beautiful way to spice up a boring chicken dinner.

This dish could be served at a fancy dinner party or it’s simple enough to include on your family’s dinner menu.

Getting into the kitchen and cooking your own food is the best thing you can do for your family’s health and it’s such a privilege too. Happy cooking!!
