I loved the sauce, and the pepper bits added color. The yogurt really allows the flavors to come through, so next time I will decrease the green pepper, as the younger members of my family objected to the flavor. I had to use extra cornstarch to thicken the sauce; perhaps this is due to varied fat contents in the chicken pieces.
