Really tasty. I just threw it in the crockpot for a couple hours with the veggies I had on hand and served it over rice. We really enjoyed the flavors. Great recipe! Read More

This was an interesting stew. In the first few spoonfuls it wasn't looking very promising. BUT... the more you eat it the more it grows on you! Although not what I expected I did ultimately enjoy it. Read More

I have made this recipie several times and felt compelled to review it. I did this recipie on the stove instead of in the microwave and it still came out wonderful. I almost always have used more than one pound of the chicken breasts (more like a pound and a half or two pounds). Also one time I tried to use half and half instead of coconut milk because I couldn't get to the store and it made the recipie way too thin (the consistency was terrible) and not good. If you pretty much follow these instructions to a T it's a keeper. Great one!!! Read More

This was FANTASTIC! Instead of microwaving I cooked this on the stovetop but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was soo yummy. I served in soup caraffes over basmati rice and I couldn't get enough. 2 bowls for dinner and more re-heated the next day for lunch. This is a recipe that I will be making again and again (during the cold months of course). Thanks so much!! Read More

Of course I had to change/add some things: I added some fish sauce a bit of sugar and the juice of 1 lime. I did not have lima beans so a few minutes before the end I added a can of peas and by the way I used 4 chicken thighs which I previously browned in oil: SUPER DELICIOUS and SUPER EASY!!!I never thought that this tpe of a dish could be so tasty cooked in the micro!! It could certainly be served for company with a garnish of cilantro leaves for instance. Read More

I decided to cook this on the stovetop instead and it came out wonderfully. You can eat this with rice or by itself. Read More

This recipe was absolutely delicious. I did have to add much more cumin and curry than specified but I do love spicy foods. Also this was nice served over brown rice and fresh green peppers. I also used instant mashed potatoes instead of regular (I forgot them at the store) but it worked really well and served to thicken the dish as well. Read More

This recipe was super easy and very good. I think there's a typo though - I used a entire 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes and it came out fine. My only complaint - not spicy enough. Add more hot sauce to taste. Read More

This was pretty good... I also made it on the stovetop. I sauteed the onion in olive oil and then added some garlic. I also used a sweet potato and forgot to add the tomatoes. It still came out good. I also added a jalapeno pepper and more curry powder to make it spicier. I think this needs something else to make it spectacular. But it turned out pretty well. Read More
