The recipe is a little vague at times but is not very difficult. Great prep time and quality. Would add cumin for increased spiciness.

This was so quick to make and very easy to put together. I really like the technique on heating the sugar before adding the chicken, very unique. I think if I make this again I would add some chopped carrots and peas just to make it more of a complete meal. I also couldn't get the curry to thicken up however it was still very yummy. Thanks so much Jenny Butt for posting your recipe.

This was SO easy to make! I used 2 tablespoons of curry powder & found it was too much for me & the kids, my husband loved it though. I must have used too much water I think because even when I mashed up some of the spuds, it was still very watery. If I make this again, I would definitely try it with a roti bread wrap, or with beef instead of chicken.
