      Delicious! Loved all of the spices and "heat" in this recipe. Easy to make, too! Served with rice. I also added a bit of water near the end, to make some "sauce". Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.

      Mmm...delightful! I used chicken breast in place of the thigh and added about 1/2 cup water along with the tomatoes so it had a little gravy. Wonderful flavours...I served over steam Jasmine rice and topped with a small blob of greek yogurt. Reviewed for Fall 2008 PAC
