Chicken Papadoris

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by William Uncle Bill

This is an excellent light curry dish to be served over cooked rice. I developed this recipe in Palm Springs, CA and it has been a big success with everyone who has tried it. The recipe name is very original as I named it after some friends of mine. Her name was "Doris" and I called her husband "Papa". Therefore, "CHICKEN PAPADORIS". You can also use chicken drumettes, wings or thighs.

Good flavor, but I think it would benefit from some veggies, like perhaps potatoes, cauliflower, and/or eggplant. I will be making this again...
