Top Review by nvguys

After making this recipe I agree with the other reviewer. I have submitted a correction for the web master to review. The serving should be 4 to 6 oz of chicken per person. This recipe was BLAND!!! I modified it to improve the taste. These are the corrections I have concluded are needed to make it taste better:

Change curry to 4 teaspoons or more. I added 4 and ½ teaspoons and it ended up being perfect!!
Change onions to 2 medium onions or more (I added 3) if you like veggies
Add thin sliced ripple cut carrots ½ to 1 cup (optional item) for additional veggies
Add one small can of bamboo shoots (optional item) for additional veggies
Pat the chicken dry before seasoning
Stir in 2 chopped green onions right before serving (optional item) if you like veggies.
I served over long grain steamed rice and everybody loved it.

Bon Appétit,
