    Tassie Chef's Note:

    I came across a similar recipe but made with lamb called 'Arminian Lamb' I have adapted this and used chicken instead and because I think it is yummy have called it Chicken Yumbo in keeping with the Caribbean theme.

      This was really good. I omitted the peppers because we dont care for them. I used crushed tomatoes and 1 small onion. This was really good, I liked how the rice turned out! Will make the again!! Thanks

      I found this recipe 'nearly there'. Sound base, but the flavour of the chicken/sauce was odd and I think the poster could have added different spices, creating a kind of curry 'blend'. As it was, the chicken/sauce tasted 'flat'. The addition of the sour cream at the end was inspired, though. The risotto was tasty, but more instructions, I feel were required as rice cooks in about 20 minutes (but maybe someone else didn't know this?). A recipe that has definite potential, but the spicing needs to be worked on a bit.

      An aromatic rather than spicy curry. Quite easy to make, although I wished for more chicken per person.Strong flavours- monitor the salt if using bought stock. Made brown rice instead of white and that seemed to work out fine. A good one to add variety to the mid-week repertoire.BF loved it.
