All you need is chicken, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and cheese.

My neighbour made it the same night and husbands were outside after dinner sharing experiences, about chicken. Her husband said it was very European. And I guess so – minimum fresh ingredients. This cooking style is programmed in me forever but anyone can reprogram themselves in the kitchen.

It takes 30 minutes to make.
