I enjoyed this recipe very much. I would advise those trying it out to be careful not to add too much brown sugar and tomato paste. Also for those who favour a more spicy flavour double the amount of curry powder. Read More

This was indeed different. My husband thought it was OK but said it would be alright if I didn't make it again. I found it on the sweet side. Read More

My husband and I LOVE this recipe! Always looking for something to do with all of those chicken legs that go on sale. The only change I make is: I use 1 red pepper 1 yellow pepper 1 orange and 1 green for added color. I have never added raisins only because I don't bake alot and so I never have them on hand. Try this recipe...it becomes a staple in your menu! Read More

No need to change a thing. This recipe works just as well with chicken breast filets no worry about the bones! Easy and tasty. Second time I made this I cheated and broiled the chicken just a touch instead of browning on the stove.I'm only cooking for 2 but made the full amount of sauce because the leftoves do indeed go with just about anything. I love this recipe! Read More

This recipe was FANTASTIC! I used just drumsticks for the chicken pieces (as that was all that I had). I also didn't have any chicken stock I know...who doesn't have chicken stock...so I used vegie stock instead. And I didn't have tomato paste so I used a whole diced tomato instead and just threw it in with the vegies! I couldn't believe how good it was! My fiancee gobbled it up and he seriously considered eating the bones! Read More

Tried 3 times adding more spice each time. Just too bland for us. Also using meat on bone is too inconvenient in such a saucy dish. This dish was okay but not great... I'll probably never make it again. Read More
