A wonderful and refreshing dish, just need the music and the ocean. Made as written.


I would actually rate this 2 1/2 if I could. Made as written, with the exception that I had crushed pinnepple instead of pineapple chunks. I don't know if it would make a differnce, but I think I would prefer the chunks. I served it over rice. The thin soup base it makes is delicious over rice. I really enjoyed it, but husband did not care for it. He said it reminds him of pot roast, which I love and he does not care for. That is the type of dish it is. I was expecting it to have a little more "spice" flavor to it, but I do like really strong flavors. After tasting it, I did add salt to my plate, which helped improve the flavor a lot. I love the easiness of the this recipe-I actually used frozen chicken tenders. And, it is healthy too.

This dish was very fragrant but we did not care for it.
