Moist, tender pieces of chicken in a rich almond, coconut and banana sauce-always a dinner winner in my house. Serve with boiled rice.

This was a real surprise for me....really coconut and banana with chicken...curry and all works together very well. I used Recipe #424976 for the garam marsala.....I just ratcheted the recipe down to a very small amount. This is easy to make and quite tasty. I served it over rice. Squeezing the lime on top really makes a difference! Try this one.
