Reviews for Pear Chutney Chicken
"I loved this chicken! Quick and easy for a weekday dinner. I served this with wild rice and steamed broccoli on the side."
"Loved, loved, loved this recipe! Made it exactly as the recipe said. I was a tad worried as I have not been a big fan of curry, but I honestly changed my mind after making this."
"mariasylviarivera2- chutney is a sort of fruit conserve (preserves) of spices and mixed fruit. Major Grey's Chutney is fairly common. Mango chutney is just a different mix of fruits. Check your store's mustard/steak sauce aisle or possibly the jelly/preserves/marmalade section."
"what is mango chutney?"
"This was great. I wanted to try it since the submitter says it freezes well, but we didn't have any leftovers to freeze! Definitely a recipe I will make again. A nice way to serve chicken that is not the "same-old-same-old"."
