    Galley Wench's Note:

    The original recipes comes from an old edition of Joy of Cooking. Over the years I've modified the recipe using only white meat and updating the cooking method. Serve over steamed white or brown rice. This is a recipe that can easily be adjusted to serve two! UPDATE 8/30/07: I've made some further adjustments to this recipe to give it more depth and 'kick it up a notch'. If using the Hot Madras Curry Powder suggest that you taste test after addition of the first teaspoon.

      I liked this. It was very easy to make. The chicken was tender and moist. I coated it in flour and baked it at 350 for 40 mins. I made no ingredient changes, but used fresh tomatoes instead of canned. I used 2 tsp Madras curry powder and 1/4 tsp hot curry powder. This is a fast and pretty meal for company too. Thanks for posting this nice recipe.
