      My pet peeve is when people change a recipe, and then post a review about it - especially when it is a negative review. I can't believe there has only been one review in 10 years, so I'm posting my review even though I did change up the recipe, however, my review is positive. This recipe was great. The flavors worked together perfectly. My change was to use boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes rather than use whole chicken pieces. I cut down on the amount of flour, mixed in the spices, coated the chicken pieces with that and then browned them. Naturally, I had to adjust the cooking time for the chicken, but I did everything else according to the recipe. I'll definitely be making this again!
