Reviews for Indian Baked Chicken
"I really liked this dish....it wasn't exactly Indian , but the flavor was reminiscent of Indian food, and that wasn't a problem for me. The recipe goes together so easily, and there's very little fat in it. (I do trim my chicken thighs very well.) It tastes so good fresh from the oven, and satisfies hungry appetites . I love the carrots and little red potatoes and onion....the dish had a slightly sweet taste to me, probably from these ingredients, as well as being a little tart from the tomato paste. Will I make it again? Most definitely!!"
"The sauce seemed like it needed more flavor, so I added a hefty tablespoon on garam masala. I usually end up adding garam masala to most Indian-type dishes, I think it adds depth to the flavor without making it too spicy for kids and pickier adults."
"Excellent and for me to say that is something because I do not like chicken thighs. My other have loves them so I am always on the lookout for recipes using them that I may like. This is at the top of the list."
"Very easy and interesting taste. I would agree with the other reviewer that a whole can of tomato sauce does make this taste sour. Next time I would reduce some of the chili powder and cumin because my family does not like very spicy things. Great comfort food and almost no hands-on work. I used cut up chicken breasts because I didn't have chicken thighs. Added a little curry powder to up the indian taste. Not that great leftover- just a tip."
"It was a very good comfort stew.. 3 out of 5 people liked it out of my family.. Its good for children because its not to bold on the indian flavor.. It was great the next day."
