This was really tasty. I used the grilled faux chicken from the brand "Beyond Meat" as I like it better than Gardein. We did not use the skewers. The sauce was really flavorful. DH, who eats meat, does not like the texture of the faux meat (I like it just fine) and therefore would prefer to try the dish again with mushrooms or tofu. I'm not vegan, so I used Greek yogurt. I decreased the amount of cinnamon per personal preference. Thanks for a nice dinner!

Fantastic sauce! I actually don't think you need to marinate the mock chicken (I used pre-diced seitan) at all, but grilling or broiling will help give it a firmer texture. Since it's thrown into the red sauce anyway I really didn't taste any of the yogurt marinade at all. All I changed was omitting the salt in the red sauce (since the marinade tasted quite salty to me) and then broiling the seitan on a baking sheet until it brown and more firm. Will definitely make again. So simple, took only about 45 minutes total after work (and I'm a slow cook!)

This was AWESOME!!! I followed the recipe to the letter, except I did omit the cilantro. I used light coconut milk, to save on calories. I also used Wildwood brand unsweetened, plain, probiotic, Soyogurt. I did not cut the "chicken" into cubes. I just left them as "breasts" and marinated them. After about an hour, I wiped off the excess marinade and then threw them on the grill on low/med. They came out fantastic! After they were grilled, I cut them into bite sized pieces and added them to the Sauce. Oh, the beautiful sauce. I think I'm in love. It was so good. I could just eat the sauce by the gallon. Next time I make this, I will double the sauce so that I have plenty. I am not a vegetarian, but I have been vegetarian curious recently. My neighbor is a vegetarian and I made this and shared it with her. We both just fell in love with this dish. She has asked for the recipe. If being vegetarian can be this delicious, I think I just might become one full-time! I couldn't be happier with this recipe and this dish. The next time I make this, I will also add about 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper to give it a little heat. Thank you, Vegan hogg, for posting this recipe!

This was GREAT!!! I'm not vegan but my bf is vegetarian so I try to accommodations. Whole foods was out of the Gardein brand so I got a different brand. It was already cubed (1/2"). Instead of putting them on skewers, I just broiled them, turning about 2 or 3 times. The vegan chicken had a great texture; a lot like real chicken!!

Love Indian food and this is a lovely rendition. Changes I made were to cut the cayenne and cinnamon in the marinade to 1/2 tsp, and because no plain soy yogurt available locally- used Tofutti sour cream. This is a keeper.
