I thought for being microwaved, it turned out very well. I thought the flavors were very good also. A good, quick, inexpensive main dish.

I did not like the sauce for this. Sorry.

My family enjoyed this one! I prefer the stove-top method to microwave though.

I didn't use curry because I didn't have it and it was horriable!

I don't care for the texture of microwaved chicken, so I prepared this on the stove-top. The browning of the chicken (3-5 minutes each side) before adding additional ingredients addes to the flavor.

Could this be done in a crockpot?
