      This was good! I had a craving for Indian food, and this definitely met it. I cut this in half, as only two of us were eating. I used fresh garlic, ginger, and bay leaf; but otherwise made as directed. The quantity of oil seemed very heavy to me, and while the onions were cooking, I ended up draining off almost 3/4 of the oil that I'd started with, so next time I'll cut it down to 1 Tablespoon for a half recipe. I used boneless skinless breast, but next time I'll use thighs, as they have more flavor, and also add more cumin and cardamom- personal preference; and less cayenne- again, just personal preference. Thanks for posting a very yummy dish!

      An easy mild chicken and rice. Cooking the rice with the chicken and oil left it a little gummy for my taste, but the other half of my household likes it better that way. I had a little trouble sauteing the bay leaf in hot oil - perhaps a fresh bay leaf was intended, not dried? With the dried, I would add it later, with the rice and chicken.

      Very nice dish I make something similar to this but Egyptian. I used all legs only because it was that or boneless chicken tenders. Very nice and easy. I love one dish meals. Thank you made for ZWT6 by a fellow Looney Spoon.
