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."

    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.

    Well the name for this recipe fits perfectly... it's definitely among the best curries that I've eaten. The flavor just gets better with every bite. Instead of serving this with rice I added a bunch of chopped spinach near the end of the cooking time. Otherwise, no changes needed- it was that good.

    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.<br/>Thanks for posting.<br/>Made for P-A-R-T-Y, December 2011.
