"My husband & I really enjoyed this for dinner tonight! Will definately make it again. I wouldn't change the spices, it was just the right amount. I'm thinking of thickening the sauce with a little cornstarch next time. I would serve this on rice as well and I really like Jasmine rice. Next time I will make it with chicken for a little change. This is healthy too!"
