Very easy and good, made as directed altho I missed out the raisins, not a fan, and I added some zucchini, also cut into matchsticks. I used garam masala for the curry powder and was generous with it. I made my couscous much later on, when the curry was about ready to serve. Nice recipe, ideal for weeknights, thank you CaliforniaJan, made for PRMR tag game

I never expected to like this dish. I'm shy about curry and unsure if I even like Indian cuisine, but I decided to give it a try. I didn't have precooked chicken so I sauteed some after the veg was done. Added a lot of garlic, plus garlic powder. I was afraid to even taste the end product but... I LOVED it. Licked the plate clean! Thank you so much, I will be making this again and again!

This was a quick and tasty meal, I used a left over breast and thigh from a 4 1/2 lb chicken. I 3/4 of the can of coconut milk and a little extra curry. It doesn't have the flavor complexity of some curries but for a fast meal it was great. I used Couscous Basics for the Couscous made with chicken broth. We topped the curry with scallions and diced cucumber. Thanks Jan for a lovely meal! Made for ZWT6 for the Unrulies Under the Influence
