    Kirby's Note:

    A tomato based chicken stew. Serve with rice for an easy, healthy meal. It's really delicious and almost hard to stop eating! Because my father wouldn't eat this, it was served only when he was out of town. I've updated it with fresh mushrooms, in lieu of canned, better curry mixes, and serve it with basmati or jasmine brown rice. Add zucchini, broccoli or cauliflower for added health. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the years. It's one of my comfort foods.

      Excellent!!! I used chicken thighs and seasoned the flour with salt & pepper, so I was able to cut back on the full teaspoon of salt. We're not too crazy about mushrooms so the last 10 minutes of cooking time, I stirred in ½ cup of raisins which beautifully complimented the curry. A definite keeper, thank you.

      Simple and delightful! I used some already-cooked chicken breast I had in the freezer, so the cooking time was shortened considerably. The flavors and seasonings are just right. Thanks for posting!

      This is a very good recipe. I did cut the thyme and curry by half. I am not a huge curry fan so thought I should cut them both to balance it out. I could still taste the curry but not overwhelming. For curry lovers go for it with gusto! My husband and son both really liked it. My son said it is at least a 10 Star!! I used chicken breasts and cut them into thick strips which cut back the simmering time to about 30 minutes. I do think it would be wonderful with a variety of chicken parts but breasts are what I had on hand. I served it over fresh linguine which worked well. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.
