A one-pan dish that's easy and fills the house with a wonderful scent. Great with either fresh or canned tomatoes. It's delicious when served over jasmine or basmati rice with mango chutney on the side.

Note: two 14oz cans of diced tomatoes works well in this dish (instead of the fresh tomatoes). Lightly drain the tomatoes before adding. The cooking time can be reduced this way. Read More

I followed the recipe using fresh tomatoes. I added in sweet potato and some chick peas. The smell was amazing however it tasted a little bland. Not sure what I did wrong. I'll make it again but will have to play with the spices a bit to get more flavor. Read More

My kids loved this and let me know we should have it again. No complaints about the peas! I went with the canned tomatoes and I baked chicken breasts on the side and cubed them. I went plus 50% on all the ingredients and that was way too much chicken I ended up not using two breasts at all. Read More

This was a tasty quick dish (I used cubed cooked chicken). This would be great served for last minute dinner guests and a quick family meal. Read More

This recipe was absolutely delicious. My husband is allergic to onions so we had to leave those out but it did not affect the dish at all. Served with aromatic white rice (a local Louisiana made in the USA variety). I will definitely be making this again! Read More

Very good flavours! The tomatoes lend sweetness to this dish that is very addictive. I ended up sprinkling a little more curry powder and garam masala because we like heavily spiced curries. Overall a very tasty dish and great for people who cannot take heat. But we like spicy curries... so if you do too I would add cayenne pepper and possibly throw in some serrano chili or Indian chili powder for kick. Read More

Yum. My toddler gobbled this up. This tastes strongly of tomato but with a nice mild spiciness. I love the crunch of the peas against the softness of the chicken. Next time I might add other veggies like potatoes or cauliflower and a touch of coconut milk or yogurt for some extra creaminess. Read More

This was a very tasty dish. I followed the recipe exactly except I added a dash of smoked paprika and used an 8 oz. can of Le Sueur peas instead of frozen. I served it over Jasmine rice. The dish definitely is better on the 2nd day. I think it was missing something but that could be because I really love spicy foods and was expecting more "kick" from the dish. Next time I think I will add a minced hot pepper. Read More
