So easy to make, this is flavorful, warm comfort food at its best. Freezes wonderfully, as well.

Looks like I am out of the norm compared to the other reviewers. But I m sorry I just didn t care for this recipe. I thought it was okay - nothing special. I just didn t care for the flavors. I love curry recipes too so I was a little disappointed. I brought some to my mom and she didn t care for it either. I would just give this recipe 2 stars however since it was healthy easy to make and all of the directions were accurate I will give it 3. Read More

This is good and easy; it's a quick substitute for making a more authentic curry and a good weeknight dinner. I made the following changes: (1) used regular (not quick) brown rice and cooked it all on the stovetop for about 50 minutes til the water was absorbed and the rice was soft. I adjusted the water/rice proportions accordingly (3/4c rice and 1 1/2 c water). It didn't seem necessary to me to turn the oven on when I could do this on the stovetop though it did mean watching it a bit more closely. (2) Added about 1/8t cayenne since the curry powder I used is quite mild. Read More

I threw this all together uncooked into a casserole dish for 75-90 minutes using 1 cup of regular brown rice. Easy and yum! We'll be making this regularly. Read More

I've made this once and it probably earned 4 stars but 'm rating this a 5 for the potential. I added about a cup of cauliflower which was a nice addition. I also added a can of tomato sauce. I think it needs 2 cubes of chicken bouillon and probably a tbsp of cumin. I will also add chopped onion next time. I started it in the skillet and just put the whole skillet in the oven covered in foil to finish it so I didn't dirty 2 pans. Do stir it often. I almost didn't add the raisins since I don't usually like fruit mixed with savory dishes but I wish I had added more they really do make it special! Read More

This casserole is wonderful! As a curry fan on a weight loss program this is a PERFECT dinner for me. The raisins (I used golden seedless) really make it special. This one is going into my repertoire! Read More

I am always looking for new dishes to try with my friends... This turned out really good (other than my mistake of using regular brown rice and it didn't get done in the oven the first time I made it) I made it again today cooking regular brown rice all the way on the top of the stove before mixing it into the rest of the recipe and into the oven... The first time I made it for 9 others and they all liked the flavor... in the future I would always cook the rice on the top of the stove before mixing into the rest... another thing I would do is to mix up the rest of the recipe the night before and let it marinade the chicken... plus makes it so easy to stick in the oven the next day and dinner is done!!! Thanks for the recipe will use it again in the future!!! Read More

I have to admit I was surprised with this recipe. I found it using the ingredient search as I was very low on groceries and needed something for supper. I would have hever thought of putting tomatoes rice raisins etc... all in the same dish but it was very tasty. Don't be afraid to try it! Read More
