Like other suggested, a quick and easy healthy midweek meal. Served mine with cous cous... not the typical combination but still tasted great!

Really nice meal, great for leftovers although I have taken to adding a bit more spice and may try adding the chilli as noted by someone else. Yum.

this meal was so nice, the pineapples gave it so much extra flavour. Although not needed I would add some sort of meat next time. 10/10

Loved it, made the mistake of adding a full tin of coconut milk, but extra sauce made a lovely soup for my lunch the next day. Very tasty and quick midweek meal

Have made this so many times now and just beautiful. So quick and easy and you can alter the amounts to suit your taste. Fab. I always use diced turkey and comes out so tender. A firm favourite on a friday night and healthy too.
