    Hungarian Gypsy's Note:

    I found this recipe to be one of the best for Country Captain. I love the taste of the currants mixed with the garlic and stewed tomatoes. I've been making this for some time now, but didn't realize it's like chili . . . every region has a little twist or has a favorite dish that Mom used to make, especially in the South. Enjoy.

      We loved this recipe. I added lots of currants and toasted almonds. It was delicious the first night and even better the next day! I will make this often. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

      This was really delicious! The flavors went together very well. I loved the sweetness of the currants and the crunch from the almonds and the subtle curry flavor. I made this to take to lunch the next day, but once I tasted it, I wound up eating half of it right then! I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs, so browned the chicken on medium high heat, then turned it down to low for the simmer. Made for PAC, Fall 2009.
