Great chicken dish! I don't care for onions so left them thinly sliced instead of mincing them into the sauce. I used recipe #38702 (Homemade Curry Powder) and the sauce was richly spiced and the chicken was tender and delicious. I will increase the pepper flakes or add some cayenne to my curry powder next time to turn up the heat a bit. We enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe!
