I didn't have any coriander so I omitted that and it still tasted delicious. I would make this again.

Loved the taste and texture of this dish! Left out the green pepper and coriander since I didn't have any on hand, and had to use a chicken boullion cube. It doesn't get much easier or quicker than this - will definitely make this again!
