    Thus dish looks amazing! My hubby is not very adventurous when it comes to food, but I love trying different dishes! I am going to add this to our monthly meal plan. Can you use chicken as a substitute for the tofu?

    This looks really good…but I’ve never been a fan of Tofu. I might be willing to give this a try though.
