Suganya Lakshmi is a popular blogger who just started su_says page full of easy and quick vegetarian and non vegetarian recipes. She shares here her favorite 20 minute chicken dinner recipe to readers.

“The non-vegetarian alternative to my easy-peasy cottage cheese scramble recipe, this takes almost no time to cook and tastes like a meaty version of salsa.  Since this is a lazy girl’s recipe, the quantity given is for a single serving but you can easily double or triple the ingredients accordingly. I usually eat this on its own, but a little tip: it tastes great with toasted multi-grain bread as well!”

The best part: You can even sneak in some TV while cooking this. Promise.

2 large tomatoes (diced)

½ an onion (diced)
