"This is a quick, weeknight version of chicken curry and uses the meat from a store-bought rotisserie roasted chicken to save time."
Serving Size: 1 (246 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"Very easy and good, made as directed altho I missed out the raisins, not a fan, and I added some zucchini, also cut into matchsticks. I used garam masala for the curry powder and was generous with it. I made my couscous much later on, when the curry was about ready to serve. Nice recipe, ideal for weeknights, thank you CaliforniaJan, made for PRMR tag game"
"I never expected to like this dish. I'm shy about curry and unsure if I even like Indian cuisine, but I decided to give it a try. I didn't have precooked chicken so I sauteed some after the veg was done. Added a lot of garlic, plus garlic powder. I was afraid to even taste the end product but... I LOVED it. Licked the plate clean! Thank you so much, I will be making this again and again!"
"This was a quick and tasty meal, I used a left over breast and thigh from a 4 1/2 lb chicken. I 3/4 of the can of coconut milk and a little extra curry. It doesn't have the flavor complexity of some curries but for a fast meal it was great. I used Recipe #421073 for the Couscous made with chicken broth. We topped the curry with scallions and diced cucumber. Thanks Jan for a lovely meal! Made for ZWT6 for the Unrulies Under the Influence"
"Awesome AND easy! I'm always scouting out recipes that use rotisserie chicken (they are on sale at the market every Monday). Followed the recipe, adding more curry, of course, and served over brown rice. Makes a ton, so plenty of leftovers."
"We had this for lunch today and it was very easy to make. My box of couscous said to use 1/3 cup more of water but I followed the directions here. Next time I might add a little more water. I used Recipe #251371 NOT store bought. Instead of coconut milk I substituted it with milk plus 1 teaspoon of coconut extract by using the kitchen reference directory. My family liked it and there was just a little left over for DD to take to work with her on Monday. I made this for *Zaar World Tour 4* 2008 round 3 the *African Region* and the *Spice It Up In Africa Challenge* I'm playing on the team *Tastebud Tickling Travelers*"
"Jan, this recipe is fabulous. I have my own recipe for chicken curry that I have been making for many years, which my family loves. I made this one for ZWT4. Our daughter said, and I quote here, "Mom, I like this as much or more than your recipe." But...but...wait! LOL! And how easy this is using a rotisserie chicken and QUICK! I did double the coconut milk for more sauce, went generous on the curry powder like Charmie said, and will also use broth for the couscous next time. I added 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes for the heat we like, and served with mango chutney and topped with peanuts. YUM! Thank you for a recipe that we will be keeping!"
"Fantastic!!! This is my new favorite curry recipe!!!! I'm going to double the sauce next time, cuz we just couldn't get enough of it. I think I was pretty generous on the curry powder, too. MMMMM! I thought the couscous was a little bland, so next time I'll use broth instead of water, and maybe season it some first. Made for ZWT 4."
"This was a quick and easy curry. I followed the recipe as directed other than I halved it for 2 of us. I love curry, so I did add a little more than called for. I also added some peanuts and mango chutney for accompaniments. Thanks Jan. Made for ZWT4."
"Got home late from a lacrosse game last night and made this in 15 minutes. Kids were happy and so was I. Thanks for a fast, easy and good dinner. Made for Photo Tag."
