Fabulous taste and easy to prepare. What more could you ask for! My version of this recipe calls for a tablespoon of curry powder or garam masala instead of 1 tsp of each. My only other change is, I bake the chicken with all the marinade together instead of basting. The pan juices are incredible over...anything! I'm hoping this summer to try this recipe on the grill.

This went down a storm in my house. Even my picky wife loved it. I made double the sauce but left out the hot sauce and the ginger. I also added quite a bit more curry powder and garam massala. Served it with peppers stuffed with cous cous. This will now be a regular meal in our house. Thank you :-)

This was fantastic! I melted everything in a skillet though and sauted cut up chicken breast in it. I poured it over white rice and even the Hubby loved it :) Thanks for a new staple in our menu.
