    treehuggingmom's Note:

    An excellent, authentic Indian recipe of a favorite dish that can be made days ahead. Easy steps include: Marinade chicken; toast almonds; cook sauce, rice and chicken. Don't let the array of spices daunt you; they're simple to add. Directions lightly modified from the original published by Food and Wine. Can refrigerate up to 3 days before service: Skip step 17, and reheat gently before serving. Sauce is delicious over other proteins and vegetables besides chicken. Serve with basmati rice, which unlike white rices have a medium glycemic index, so is a pretty good alternative, akin to whole wheat bread, for diabetics. Directions for the rice are not included here. I'm listing this as 6 servings, to be served accompanied by a vegetable dish or salad.

      Wow! Great dish with lots of flavor. I mistakenly grabbed a package of boneless breast out of the freezer instead of the thighs, but this worked great with those (I cut the cooking time down to compensate). Will be making this again. Made for Spring 2014 PAC.
