It's easy to buy a cooked hen, take the meat off the bone and use it in a 'wow' recipe. I especially like it for dishes like this curry that I might not have time to make from scratch.

I was so excited about this recipe but it turned out of more of a chicken curry soup than a curry. I think it was the chicken broth that ruined it. If it wasn't for that I think this dish would be great. The finished product was very thin and you couldn't even taste the coconut milk (the best part!). I may try to thicken the leftovers with cornstarch (and there are a LOT of leftovers!). Read More

Very very good. I followed the recipe to a T....only added the cilantro to the dish while cooking. (I do this all the time....dried from Penzeys Spice Company). Thank you for sharing! Read More

This is very good for a curry considering how easy it is to make. My husband loved it. It will be a standard. I used chicken breasts. It is a keeper. Read More

Yummy as directed. I do like a little more coconut sweetness. Perhaps I will drain the tomatoes next time. So good with noodles! Read More

First time using curry. I wanted a change from the norm.I didn't do the "to serve" part. Served with mashed potatoes to soak up the sauce. My husband and I both liked it. Read More

I've never had curry chicken but really wanted to try it. I found this recipe and decided that the ingredients were simple enough and I had almost every ingredient listed. This came out well. I had to add a flour and water mixture to help it thicken up a little. Besides that it was pretty good. My family loved it. I wasn't quite sure what you serve with this kind of dish so I just added a tossed green salad. This one is a keeper and I will be making this again. I only gave it four stars because I really haven't had any other curry dishes to compare it with. Read More
