    Cook on medium heat adding a two tablespoons of water every 5 minutes - this stops the chicken from drying out.

Instead of using chickent thigh fillets, use wings chopped into three, diced breasts or drumsticks.
Add vegies like capiscum, beans and carrots for extra colour and bite.
Add a tablespoon of cream just before serving for a creamy sauce.
