A simple to make, extremely tasty curry. I used thighs instead of the breasts (like them better) and a bit more lemon juice, but otherwise followed the recipe. We ate this with saffron potatoes, a tomato, cucumber and yoghurt salad, and naan bread to dip in the yummy juices of this curry. Thanks for the recipe Pete.

I have grown up eating this dish and I love it. Great for winter days. I always end up adding more salt to taste and eat it with bread usually.it isnt attractive to look at but tasty and you filling too. Its supposed to belike a thicker stew so the people who have negative comments are commenting on things that are supposed to be with this dish. Worth trying. My fiance doesnt like anything curry or similar to but loves this.

When I see a recipe so highly reviewed yet offering the results this one did, I have to wonder if I did anything wrong. The directions were so well written, don't think that was the problem. Was a little disappointed with the resulting texture of this dish. The lentils lost all of their form and color leaving a rather soupy (enough so, we served it in bowls over bulgar pilaf) and green-gray product. The flavor was good, but I chose to add a little extra ginger and garam masala to adjust for our tastes. I think it might have worked better if the chicken and lentil were cooked together reducing the total cooking time leaving you with a more toothy legume. Were certainly dabble as I think this has great potential for us.

Sorry, but I found thiss rather bland to taste and insipid to look at. I was looking for something quick and easy, which it certainly is, but I found the result rather unappetising. The leftovers in the fridge are not calling to me....

Great curry ... I used Sambal Oelek instead of dried red pepper. Yumm. Thanks for sharing ... we'll be using this one again
