I left the chicken out of this and made it for a side dish. The recipe intrigued me, it is certainly a different way to cook potatoes. We loved them! The curry is so good on these, and the potatoes were tender and very flavorful. I let them get brown before adding the water. They were kind of like cubed hash browns, but with a lot better taste. Thanks for the recipe, Angela Sara!

Excellent.. Using the meat from one boneless chicken breast, and adding a side of sliced tomatoes, I enjoyed a wonderful solo lunch. One medium potato cooked in 1/2 cup of water was fork tender in about 6 minutes. Thank You, Nadia for perking up an old man's day.
