      Love this recipe and will make it again & again. Will definitely try using shrimp the next time. We added extra lemon. Thank you for sharing!

      This dish is just awesome! I really liked that you use milk instead of coconut milk; you get the nice creaminess without the overpowering sweetness. I added an extra tsp. of curry powder and served with Chickpea Curry (Garbanzos) for an amazing meal. Thanks for posting this keeper!

      Yummy! Made this for dinner last night, DH had seconds, and I ate the fourth serving for lunch today. Using leftover chopped cooked chicken straight from the freezer, this was ready to eat in under 40 minutes. Didn't have curry powder so subbed in red curry paste instead. Really good! Going into my dinner rotation for sure.
