Excellent!!! I served this over saffron and spiced rice and it was the perfect accompaniment. This has wonderful flavours that are different but taste sooo goood together. I did not know what to expect from this, it sounded good, a little unusual, but the end result is outstanding and all I got was yum, this is so good mum. Actually it started right from the point of cooking with "what are we having for dinner it smells awesome." A great recipe and one we will look forward to again real soon.
I doubled this recipe to feed 10 which was plenty plus we had leftovers and lunches made. I found that the sauce Should have been halved there was so much sauce leftover its ridiculous. I did put it on the side so people can add sauce if they choose to and everybody did as far as I know but there's a whole bowl full still in the refrigerator. And also the amount of Tandori paste needed is a little more than you should have to use, There was heaps still left in the marinater which was a bit of a waste. Also the chicken needed to be cooked probably a further 15 minutes than stated and turned out perfectly cooked! But apart from these minor things everybody loved this dish! I served this with 'Simple but Amazing! Saffron Risotto' TY Mickey
Don't know how this recipe made it so long without someone else making it, but let me tell you ~ You're missing out! This chicken dish, from my point of view, IS different & it's WONDERFUL TASTING! With recipes like this I need to follow right down the line, otherwise I don't know what it should taste like when finished! I did use some of my own Raisin Peach Chutney for the fruit chutney! Thanks so much for sharing this great taste treat! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16]
