    Noo's Note:

    This is such an easy recipe, but so tasty. I used to put it on the menu of the gastro pub where I worked-people used to phone us to see if it was on and reserve portions! Even my Pops loves this and he is impossibly critical!Hope you enjoy!!

      This is a very tasty dish! I went to an Indian grocery store to buy chili powder but I was fearful that it would be too hot for us, so I used a total of 1 teaspoon for a triple batch of sauce, and it was just the right amount of heat. I made the sauce ahead of time, and then added 12 skinless chicken thighs and baked at 300 F. until they were tender. I did not add any water when I added the chicken. The sauce was fairly thick at that point, but the juices from the chicken while baking gave the perfect consistency to the finished sauce. I'm thinking that next time I might add coconut milk instead of cream to finish the sauce, just because I like it so much.

      My wife is Chinese, so I'm well rounded with various foods, and this was a fantastically simple recipe with a FANTASTIC result!

      I actually used twice the powders suggested, 1/2 the amount of chicken, and began by frying the chicken with the powders to begin with to ensure taste sunk into the chicken

      but yea, brilliant...

      I have made Indian meals before but this was better than any of them! It was the perfect mixture of sweet & spicy. I recommend doubling the sauce especially if you are making 4 or more chicken breasts. This allows you to have extra sauce to mix with the rice or dip the bread in. Will make again!
