"This was very good. I substituted olive oil for the vegetable oil and eliminated the curry powder. I would make this again. Thanks for the recipe."

"The whole family enjoyed this dish, I came across it in a old Taste of Home Annual. My 4 year old who is picky ate every bit."

"This recipe is easy and tastes great! I've made it for company and served it with rice pilaf, and it was an excellent company meal. But it's also easy enough for a weeknight meal at home."

"Just the taste I was craving!

I did it all in the saucepan - browned the chicken, added some onions, and poured the sauce over. Let it simmer for 5-7 minutes covered, then another few minutes uncovered until the sauce is your desired consistency. Yum!"
