Will absolutely make this again!!!I did make some changes but used all the ingredients listed. I made for the two of us, I used half the amount of chicken and added instead some finely chopped green beans, about 1 cup. I increased the cooking time and I let it simmer for about 40 minutes on low after browning, added about 3/4 cup of chicken broth, bit by bit, the potatoes soaked up the broth. It ended up with a nice coating of sauce which tasted wonderful!! It was quite spicy for me but it was also a very fresh clean taste. I served it with cucumber raita, chopped mango and naan bread... Thanks for posting!!!
