These spicy roasted chicken thighs don't require a lot of prep time, I often put baking potatoes on the oven rack alongside the chicken. It's simple satisfying meal. —Kara De la vega of Suisin City, California

"These are just great! My whole family loves the flavor. I love how the meat stays tender (I used breast meat in place of the thighs and it worked great). I think the curry was the key to making it taste so good. The first time, I used boneless thighs and baked them. The second time, I used breast meat on cooked them in a tiny bit of oil in a frying pan. Just wonderful! A thought: put in about 3/4 tsp cumin, rather than the whole tsp."

"We expected to like this but didn't care for it at all. We like spicy food but this was just too strong and not a good blend of flavors."
