I really enjoyed making and eating this dish. I wanted to eat Indian but didn't feel like having a take away so I decided to try this. It turned out great!! I made the marinade as stated but didn't skewer the chicken. I broiled it in the oven but I think next time I'll grill it. That should give the flavour more depth. I substituted sriracha for the jalapenos, added a small onion and used more garlic than the recipe called for....we love garlic! This was a very tasty recipe and I will definitely be making it again.

I liked this recipe a lot. Went over very well for dinner, but we found the taste of cinnamon to be a bit overpowering compared to the other flavors. Will use a bit less next time. Very authentic tasting recipe!

This was very good. I love spicy foods but this was a little over the top for my taste. The red pepper pretty much overwhelmed the rest of the flavors. Will use only one tsp. next time. Also, I think scotch bonnet would be a better pepper instead of jalepeno. I substituted fat free yogurt and used FF half and half instead of whipping cream and it was plenty thick. Served with coconut jasmine rice.

I used this recipe for my first attempt at Indian food. Wow! It turned out great! I'd say it's about a 4 star spiciness level. It actually isn't hard to make either--the trick is to get the right spices. If you've never been to an Indian market, I def recommend it! I was blown away by all the cool products at mine.

I made a few changes to the recipe: used olive oil instead of butter, replaced the cream & full-fat yogurt w/ non-fat yogurt, and at the end it was missing "something" so I added about 1Tbsp of honey--perfect! My sauce was a bit too thick (from using yogurt instead of cream) so I added 1/4C water. And, instead of grilling, I just broiled the chicken for about 10min.

Also I didn't buy any naan which was a huge mistake! It was really spicy so I ended up using whole wheat toast to sop up my sauce & cool my mouth--not exactly as good as naan is!!

Anyway, I definitely recommend this recipe!!

Other than cooking the chicken on the stove top, I made this exactly as written. It didn't specify about the tomato sauce, so I used the regular (not the "no salt added") kind. The result was that the dish was ridiculously salty. But still delicious! Next time I'll definitely get the no/low salt tomato sauce, probably cut the actual table salt added in half, and use whole milk or yogurt instead cream. Also, I usually leave cilantro out of recipes because I and everyone I cook for doesn't like it, but I felt like a little bit actually went with it nicely. I probably won't use it next time though. The spiciness level was perfect! Thanks for sharing!

The instructions are nicely laid out, I didn't feel rushed or like I was going to need extra hands at all, I love a relaxing dinner :)

I made it almost as stated, I only omitted the jalapeno (I used red chili powder instead) and broiled the chicken rather than grilling (about 7 mins per side) and used 1 cup plain yogurt in place of the cream in the sauce.

This is AMAZING!!!! First time I've successfully made an Indian dish, and it so happens to be my favorite one! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
