My Quick Chicken recipe: Necessity is the mother of invention

I looked at the few chicken pieces in front of me and was unable to locate one decent piece in them. Situation was really frustrating. All the more so because it was late evening and I must cook dinner quickly.  At that moment this idea struck my mind.
From then onwards this dish become just a one of our regular menu list.
This dish is very useful to me in many ways:  
  • No. 1 it helps me to handle the challenge of cooking a good dinner with any scrap chicken pieces
  • No. 2 it is very quick yet delicious
  • No. 3 the chicken stock can be stored & used for other purpose

5 to 6 medium sized chicken pieces.
