"This was very easy. I did not have frozen spinach, so I used canned leaf spinach. It worked great. My husband said, "It's a keeper!"."

"This was my 1st time cooking with Curry, this dish is delish. I used 1can of Rotel & almost another can of roasted tomatoes instead of fresh. Also I removed chicken & left onions in pot then added spinach more curry & a little cayenne pepper with seasonal spice & chopped garlic . I doubled recipe and cooked tomatoes & spinach for at least 30 minutes. Then added coconut milk & put chicken back in pot. Really came out good thumbs up dish I will be trying again I also replaced white rice with saffron yellow rice great meal."

"This was amazing! I have a very picky 7-year old who won't eat just about everything healthy. He loved this and even ate the spinach! I've made this several times and it comes out perfect every time. The coconut milk gives a slight sweet flavor and a creamy texture.; so good!"

"I have been craving curry chicken so badly and this hit the spot! I had to add 1/2 tsp more of salt and use himalyan pink sea salt and added a sliced up green pepper, onion,a garlic clove and a bit of cayenne to give it some kick and more pepper. I like curry with a little fire and this was very tame but still delish! Will make again!"

"Taste is ok but I will make a few changes next time including:

- remove chicken after it has lost its "pinkness"
- next add tomatoes and spinach and cook until spinach has wilted
- return cooked chicken to the pan and add coconut milk.
- let simmer for a minute or 2
I paired this dish with coconut rice (coconut milk, basmati rice, and dried unsweetened coconut flakes). Next time I would add fresh pineapple pieces to rice near end of cooking time to add sweetness and freshness without adding sugar. Also topped rice with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime."

"I changed it up a little bit because coconut milk is not something I can eat right now. Instead of the coconut milk, I added a tablespoon of coconut flour and 1 cup of half-n-half. The flour still gives it the hint of coconut without me breaking my diet! (Oh and I didn't serve it with the rice, I just put it in a bowl and ate it just as is.)"
