My husband and I love this yummy dish! It's a breeze to prepare in the slow cooker, and it tastes just like a meal you'd have at your favorite Indian or Thai restaurant. —Andi Kauffman, Beavercreek, Oregon

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 8, 2015

"Very full of flavor. I will make this again but will more then likely double for leftovers."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 25, 2015

"I doubled the sauce part of the recipe using the entire can on coconut milk, used carrots instead of potatoes and I added baby corn. I cubed the chicken before putting it in the crock pot. I also added cilantro to the toppings. Everyone enjoyed the meal and put it on the serve again list."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2015

"I followed this recipe exactly and crock potted it for 4.5 hours. It didn't look ANYTHING like the picture and had an odd taste. There was something off putting about serving potatoes over rice. Nothing to salvage here, so it went down the sink. First failed ToH recipe."
