My mum has made this for years - I think it comes from a Family Circle box of recipes on individual cards that she has had for as long as I can remember. I love it as it reminds me of home!

What a lovely change from the usual creamy chicken recipes. It had so much flavour - devilishly good! I look forward to making this again.

Was absolutly delicious. Thank You. Substituted sausages for the chicken. It was a last minute idea to cook sausages different. Didn't have any dry mustard in the cupboard so substituted dijon mustard instead. Cooked it in the microwave for 15 minutes...quick & easy & as I said delicious.

We all really enjoyed this chicken thank you. It was simple, and the sauce was really well flavoured. Russell used a hot mustard, so that and the curry gave it a really nice bite. I removed the chicken and reduced the sauce before serving it over mashed potatoes for a really good winter meal.
