Great flavor brought to prefection on the BBQ. Be sure to watch chicken carefully, smaller pieces will, of course, cook more quickly.

I served this with a side of curried couscous. There were no leftovers. Made for Gimmie 5 Tag

We enjoyed this but thought that the curry flavor really didn't come through like we had hoped for. Next time I would double the curry to get that wonderful flavor. I also didn't have any marinade leftover, no big deal. But cooking over medium hot heat caused a flare up so I moved the chicken to indirect heat. I did use bone in with skin on chicken breast for this dish. Overall a great dish. Thanks Annacia for posting.

I used chicken breasts for this recipe and it worked perfectly. The curry comes thru very nicely on this chicken which is a wonderful switch-up for us when marinating. First time actually. Also, as Mary suggested, added a bit of chopped fresh cilantro. Wonderful blend. A keeper that's for sure. Made for 123Hitwonders~
