This was quite easy to make, I marinated the chicken a longer then 30 minutes, because hubby was late home from work. I really like the way I didn't have to brown the chicken (like more curries) so it make it so simple top put together the last stage of the curry. The flavours all really worked together, the only thing I would change is next time I would use chicken thighs because the chicken would have been more tender. Thanks JustJanS for posting your recipe.
