  34. I love this recipe Sonia! I have lots of those herbs in the fridge that my mother in law left in the fridge (and I haven't used at all..haha). Thanks for the recipe. Will try when I come back!

  35. Minimal seasoning is good! I like this style. The herbs will just shine with the chicken after steaming.

  36. This dish is beautiful. I'm not sure I can find all the ingredients here, but likely some similar things to substitute. Perfect use for some of our local chicken in the freezer.
