Good flavor, but I think it would benefit from some veggies, like perhaps potatoes, cauliflower, and/or eggplant. I will be making this again...

An excellent curry dish! India cusine is a favorite of mine and this was supurb.I made this tonight for my son who is visiting and he gives it two thumbs up also. I only use Basmati rice which is perfect with this dish as it is a firmer rice. I made exactly as posted with excellent results. As I only use Penzy's spices I normaly use half the amount in a recipe as their spices are some stronger than those purchased at the grocery. In this I used exact amounts which was perfect. I suggest using the roasted pine nuts as they add such as wonderful flavor. I purchase pine nuts at an Italian Market where they are less expensive and I can chose smaller amounts. Having several more chicken breasts I made a second batch after supper tonight. To this batch I added 1/4 teaspoon Garam Masala which gave a slighty more intense India flavor however, the recipe is perfect as is. Thanks for another great recipe Uncle Bill. Your becoming a household name here. Samijo

DH loved this, while I was sort of on the fence. I followed the recipe verbatim, except for 2 things- no pine nuts, and I used lite coconut milk. Chicken breast has never turned out so moist and delicious for me, so I'm going to keep your cook times in mind for other things, Bill- very good. DH loved the subtle flavors, but to me, it was lacking slightly. Overall though, a truly simple and enjoyable meal. Thanks for sharing.

This was quite good. I used mild curry powder and added some red pepper flakes. I omitted the pine nuts as I didn't have any. I served it over pasta and think it would have been better over rice. Live and learn. :) Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This was very quick and easy. The sauce was different than most coconut curry dishes. Richer and nuttier. I used regular paprika and curry paste instead of powder. Served it over jasmine rice. I will definitely be making again. Thanks Bill!

Fine recipe, except the ommission of when to put in the curry and cumin, so I put it in with the rest at step 5. Pine nuts can be pricey, and need to be roasted, so I just used sesame seeds instead. They're similar in effect on flavor and are already roasted in the jar. My corn starch must be old, as it didn't thicken up as much as I expected, so went to plan B and threw in a teaspoon of flour. Reminded me of Chick Tikka Makhni, one of my Indian favorites. This would go well with rice.

I have made this several times. Each time it is wonderful! Quick and easy enough for a week night meal with a rich spicy taste. My husband asks for this often and he is a meat and tater sort of guy! Thanks for sharing a winner!

I liked this but my husband didn't. He didn't like the nutty flavor.

Very tasty-- I, too, added some red pepper flakes to give it a bit more "kick," but I could enjoy it without this addition
