Reviews for Spicy Curried Chicken
"Very disappointing. Amount of tomatoes too much. Flavour good but family would not eat it due to ratio of tomatoes to other ingredients."
"Make this frequently and keep forgetting to rate it and keep in my recipe box so I can find it more quickly. Serve it with jasmine rice rather than pasta and with some naan."
