Chicken Saag

"I had been a big fan of Saag Paneer before I tried this recipe, and so I was anxious to try a spinach curry with meat. The results turned out very tasty."

    Made exactly as directed, I wouldnt change a thing! I suspect I may have used a bit less spinach since my dish doesnt look as spinachy as the other photo, but I assure you, it was fabulous! A regular dish for us from now on, thank you! Made for I Recommend tag game

    This saag curry was delicious, and so much easier to make than other saag recipes that I've tried. I loved how the flavors transformed as the saag was cooking, and I made a huge batch because I knew the flavors would just get better the longer it sits in the fridge- and it did! I'd definitely recommend cooking this a day in advance like I did. Great recipe- thanks for sharing it!

    Delicious! My husband and I really enjoyed the spinach curry. I added some chili to give it a bit of a kick and it was fantastic.
