  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 3-1/2 pounds), cut up

Reviewed Apr. 26, 2013

"We are low-sodium and am always on the lookout for flavorful meals within our sodium restrictions. What a wonderful combination of flavors. I marinated skinless/boneless breasts. I was going to broil them but sauteed them instead, I didn't want to heat up the house with the oven. They were delicious and OMG did my house smell good!  Definitely gonna make this again."
