A very nice chicken curry which presents beautifully--the colors of the peppers remain very bright and the dish looks beautiful. The flavor is very good, but there is an element missing--whether the curry needs a touch of cream or a bit of sourr cream--something to smooth the taste and bring the flavors together. I used Caribbean Curry mix #158082 to make the curry paste for the marinade.
This was good, but a little dry for my taste. I think a little salt and some kind of liquid to make it more moist would be helpful.
Very Good! Just a bit to much tomatoes. I`d even skip them completely next time making this dish! I used 1 very large jalapeno. As for marinating overnight I wouldn`t or the texture of the chicken get`s wierd. I marinated for 1 hour and that was great. It was hard to brown the chicken because it did a lot of splattering. So I added the marinade and let it cook. Thanks for the Caribbean Treat!
