This is a great and easy dish to make. I added fresh mango to the recipient and initially fried the chicken in some curry powder to give some extra spice based on other reviews. Wow it's lovely. I have made it in advance of dinner so I can let it all infuse further until we need it tonight. Added all the contents to my fitness pal and it comes out at 279 calories with 38 g of carbs and 20g protein, 2.5g of fat. A good balanced dish or the gym goer.

Asked my 7 year old to choose ingredients for dinner and he chose banana and chicken. On that basis we gave this recipe a shot. All in all I would have to call it a success. I certainly enjoyed it althought as another reviewer said, it could use a bit more kick. Family was a little dubious based on the odd combination of fruit and chicken (at least, unusual for this very WASP house hold :) but after everyone was talked into giving it a shot there were 5 empty bowls at the table. I don't think it was enough of a hit to crack the weekly rotation but it was a very pleasant change of pace, so easy I could make it, and very novel. Probably something that will hit the menu about once a month.

This was great, a real different curry dish! I liked it better the second day, when the flavours had time to meld. The banana is really tasty in this. I used canned pineapple and omitted the bay leaf. I added a sprinkle of sugar (personal preference). Next time i will cook the chicken in a little curry powder as well. My husband requested more heat but it was perfect for me. Thanks!
