Great combination of readily available seasonings and ingredients. I used chicken breast cut into chunks and cooked it all in a skillet on the stove top.

This is so similar my mothers recipe ( she called it "gebrunte chicken-" only she used powdered spices= this is better with the fresh garlic and ginger. Thanks for this great recipe

My chicken came out a bit dry, perhaps I overcooked it. But otherwise, I followed directions pretty closely. There was a lot of juice in the pan, so it surprised me that the chicken was that dry. I wanted to try something different, and this recipe certainly delivered. But it was okay and didn't wow me. My husband liked it, though, and I'll probably make it again. What was nice was that it was easy to make and kept well for shabbos.

I made this for shabbos dinner, and everyone absolutely loved it... I also modified it by forgetting the cloves...oops. But it turned out great anyway!!!

I LOVE this recipe! Easy and very tasty. Unfortunately my elderly parents did not like it. My parents' tastes are too "americanized" and I didn't think they would like it even before I made it (although they are always game to try the recipes I make) They ate it - just didn't care for the turmeric (which is the reason I LOVE it!) If you like Indian food and curries, you will love this. Definitely is not hot or spicy like curries - this is a very mild, yummy turmeric flavored chicken (exactly the recipe I was looking for when I found this one!) Don't be put off because my parents didn't like it - they would hate Indian resteraunts and Thai food too - they dislike anything that is out of the typical american diet. The juice IS wonderful just like the recipe claims. I served it over coucous although I think next time I will use rice OR I was thinking with experimenting making a sauce / gravy out of the juice next time! Since I also like spicy (not hot) foods, I'll add more of the spices too - which will make the sauce perfect if I add liquid to it to make more sauce. I did chop the onion and I added the cinnamon stick with the other spices. I will definitely make this again - just not for my parents.
