Excellent! I tried this dish and it came out very good. In step 1 of the recipe it asks you to put in milk powder, but I used raw cream instead as it was mentioned in the ingredients list. I used boneless chicken thighs for this dish. I will definitely be making this dish again very soon. Thank you!
