Day 313 - T.G.I. Friday's Sizzling Chicken

Many a times after I dine at a restaurant, I felt like going into the restaurant kitchen and some how steal the recipes from the chef. Looks like I don’t have to do that now, as I’ve received a cookbook called “America’s most wanted recipes”. It has the recipes for almost all famous restaurant chains. For dinner, I tried the sizzling chicken of TGIF. I was surprised how flavorful this dish tasted, as it only called for a very few ingredients. Sizzling chicken topped on sauteed peppers and mashed potatoes.

This evening while coming home, my mind was full of this dish. It’s been a long timee since I made this dish. This is  one of our family favorites and my mom makes this often. Last year when I visited my mom, one dish that I had asked to prepare for me was this. I absolutely adore this dish, full of flavor. This can be made with shrimp, chicken, goat meat, beef etc. My favorite is with shrimp, so for dinner I made with shrimp.
