Simple Chicken Curry Haiku: "Daughter said of this 'it looks like mustard gravy!' Turns out we loved it!" Despite its bright yellow hue I am still surprised at how much we adored this meal. I had to toss in a handful of frozen green beans (would've preferred peas but was out) during the last 5 min. boil w/ the chicken b/c the color was so off-putting. I halved the recipe for 3 of us and we ate every last sloppy bit pouring what seemed to be a ton of the sauce over a blend of quinoa and brown rice. Even w/o the addition of the green beans it would've tasted just as wonderful and there's no question that when I give something 5 stars it's definitely going in the keeper file! Read More

It was an ok recipe. Made as is. Wouldn't make it again. Still searching for an exceptional chicken curry. Read More

I followed this exactly, and my husband and I loved it! Thanks! Also, I did add the peas... 4/18/2017 I want to repeat that we love this recipe. I always chuckle when I read reviews from people who don't follow the directions, and then give the recipe a bad review. Yikes! Follow the directions and enjoy this dish! Yummy! Read More

I added mushrooms and frozen peas. I cut the salt in half. I also used ghee instead of butter whole wheat flour and lite coconut milk. It had to cook about 15 minutes to get to the right consistency but it was good. A bit healthier alternative. Read More
