"A few simple spices turn chicken from ordinary to exotic. This recipe is from a 2001 issue of Chatelaine, a Canadian magazine. Enjoy!"

    I made this exactly as posted, except I used thin-sliced chicken breasts, which don't take long to cook on the grill at all. I actually ended up marinating the chicken overnight, using a hot curry powder. The chicken was moist and full of flavor. This is so easy to put together. I will be making this again!

    We loved this easy, grilled chicken. The spice mixture was so easy to put together and it gave the chicken loads of flavor! Thank you! Made for ZWT8 Family Picks ~ Special

    This was a nicely spiced chicken dish, and I'm glad I tried it. Due to inclement weather, I used our indoor grill, so I didn't get great grill marks. However, this was a very moist breast, and the spice was just 'different' enough. Served with rice and a green salad, this made for a tasty dinner from another land! Thanks for sharing, Nif.

    I used bone-in thighs and mild curry powder to make this delightful chicken dish. We enjoyed it very much and will make it again. I served it with your raita recipe and garlic rice. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8.

    Yum - loved this chicken! My curry powder was hot and we loved all the spicy flavor. I coated boneless skinless breasts with the oil/spice mixture and let it sit for about an hour before cooking. Served with your recipe #482134 and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
