From the Chicago Tribune Magazine. The author adapted this recipe to introduce a young child to ethnic food other than pizza and spaghetti. It is a very mild curry, and my problem adult eater really enjoyed it. Tasty and colorful, it's fast andeasy to whip up.

This was really good, and served its intended purpose of introducing DS to curry. I personally added garlic powder and red pepper at the table, but that was a small price to pay for a meal we could all enjoy! I used light coconut milk and frozen tomatoes, plus one of DS's old carrot baby food cubes instead of tomato paste; all worked just fine. Thanks for posting! Made for PRMR.

I love anything curry, so I knew I would love this dish, and it was totally delicious! I made the first time following the recipe but next time may play around with it a little. It was perfect as is though, so try it if you enjoy curry dishes! I loved the blend of infused flavors with the chicken. Great dish Duonyte! Thanks for sharing it with us!

We really enjoyed this. I made it almost exactly to the recipe but had more like 4 teaspoons of curry powder. This curry has a beautiful smell to it as it's cooking. Had to let the chicken cook more than the 6 minutes that it suggests even though my pieces were very small. A really tasty recipe.
