    I got this off the internet a few years ago. It is now my youngest son(a chef in Melbourne)'s requested dish when he's at home. So I guess to him it's major comfort food!

      We loved this chicken. The flavors all together were beautiful, but not too rich. I liked the yogurt instead of sour cream. It was very easy to put together, and it made a lovely meal. I will be using this one again.

      DH and I both enjoyed this very much. I used thighs and legs, removed the skin and bone and let the chicken simmer in the sauce for 45 minutes. The chicken was tender, and the sauce was superb. I served this with oven roasted potatoes. Will definitly keep this one habdy! Thanks a bunch Jan!
