Malay Recipe: Ayam Paprik / Chicken Paprik

Ayam Paprik is a simple dish that I would prepare whenever Mr Husband is on the way back and I have less than 30 minutes to get dinner ready.

It is a simple dish that is very easy to prepare. You can also put in vegetables in the dish so that you don't have to cook a second vegetable dish.
