"I made this recipe for a family dinner and it instantly became a family favorite. The curry and sweetness of the cranberries is unique. Great to make in large quantities and eat throughout the week."

"I was SO excited to try this recipe. I figured it had to be a great recipe, because it just sounded so good with the chicken, the raisins and craisins, the almonds... but it was a HUGE disappointment. The curry flavor was really overwhelming to me. Maybe I'm just not in love with curry like some. My husband enjoyed it. We usually eat a meal a couple nights in a row, and I just couldn't bear to eat it again. It left a bad taste in my mouth that I didn't enjoy."
