Yum Yum Chicken Curry

We made this last night and it was fantastic; it came from a recent magazine recipe, but we made some changes (per reader feedback) and I wanted to jot down how I did it - it was very, very good, but keep in mind - you can't forget the lemon. It wasn't as good til we added lemon (which was supposed to be in there but I forgot). It is fairly spicey, I would adjust spice levels to taste. Also, serve this over basmati rice.

Yummy indeed! I also subbed a can of tomatoes for the fresh ones and furthermore I used skin and boneless chicken thighs. The seasoning was right on spot. Yes, a very good curry. It also freezes well. Very pleased I tried this recipe.
Thanks for posting.
Made for P-A-R-T-Y, December 2011.

Very yummy! Substituted a 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes for the fresh, and it was still delicious!

This is very tasty and makes a lot of sauce, so serving it with rice is a good idea. Next time I'll add more veggies maybe some carrots and spinach for color and increased nutrition. I also added more of the spices...just my personal preference.
