Recipe was definitely okay but not especially flavoursome. Next time I would add one or two diced onions at the beginning and fry until translucent then add the chicken. I hope that would add more flavour and I would then reduce the amount of yogurt slightly. Read More

Pretty solid recipe. The chicken and potatoes definitely soaked up all the spices and they tasted great. The sauce could have been thicker and more flavorful but overall a simple and tasty recipe. Read More

This was very good. The spices and herbs really made this recipe. It was a meal in itself. I used two packages of frozen spinach--defrosted in the microwave and squeezed out the juices. Read More
