Tomatoes, Chicken, and Ginger

We tried out two newbies last night, a recipe and a kitchen appliance! We made Chicken with Tomato-Ginger Chutney and used the new rice cooker for the first time. For the chicken and chutney, other than chopping some initial ingredients, there was little effort involved. We mostly waited while the chicken cooked and the chutney simmered, with an occasional flip or stir. To keep the waiting time down, we cooked the chicken and chutney in separate pans at the same time. The chutney was a tasty addition to the chicken breasts and also added a bit of color to the plate.

The first run of the rice cooker was a success. We should have probably waited a bit longer before scooping the rice onto our plates, but it was late and we were impatient. We'll save the waiting for next time.


  1. How about a pic of the cooker. jb

  2. I'll try to get one next time around. I thought of it as I was posting.
