Made this for dinner a few weeks ago and it was really lovely. I love the use of yoghurt instead of coconut milk, it really does give it a light citrusy flavour. I used chicken breast and cooked for the full 20 minutes but would probably cook for a bit less next time as the chicken was a little dry from over cooking. I also added a handful of unsalted cashews during the last 10 minutes of cooking which added a lovely texture. Would definately make again.
