This is easy and quick. The sauce may be thickened and poured over each serving or served in bowls for a dipping sauce. The flavor is great!

This is the perfect recipe for a busy night -- and everything I needed was right in my cupboard. I followed the directions as written, except that when I added the onion to the pan, I sauteed it on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes so the pieces of onion would carmelize. I then proceeded with the rest of the recipe. It was on the table in a jiffy and everyone loved it. Instead of using the extra sauce for dipping, I ladled it over the mashed potatoes. Yum! Thanks for posting this great recipe.

I added cabage to the sauce- really awesome. made a side of jasime rice with lemon and coconut milk. that's was great too. this meal is VERY spicy, but that's only because cabage is good with a lot of pepper with it.

i was looking for recipes based on the ingredients i had and this one came up. i skipped the hot pepper flakes and served the chicken with couscous and asparagus. The sauce was delicious and the whole recipe was extremely easy to make. thank you!
