This was a very good, quick, & easy recipe. I enjoyed the carrots and the raisins in the curried rice and the chicken came out very tender and moist. I found the directions to be clear and accurate. Next time I will saute the rice and the spices briefly with the browned chicken & onions before adding the liquids to enhance the flavors of the spices a bit more (and add a bit more of all seasonings).Thanks - we enjoyed this very much.
