Easy and tasty. A great change of pace. Chef's Note: According to the directions, as written, the chicken has a total cooking time of about 17 minutes. This is ample time if you are using thin pieces. If you are using thick, large pieces, please increase cooking time accordingly.

I have had this recipe in my file of favorites for years. I got it from a cookbook called, "Easy Cooking for Today". It is quick and easy to make and very tasty.

I love a good curry and have had a hard time finding a good Indian restaurant in my part of Florida. I recently started to try and make it at home, but couldn't find a decent recipe. Thank you Recipezaar and Sharlene~W, I can now eat good curry again!

Excellent! I took this to a party and everyone liked it. Had some requests, too. News about recipezaar is spreading in my part of Oregon :) One thing I'd add is that toppings can really add a fun element to this dish.
