My husband and I enjoyed this dish very much. In fact, I’m already looking forward to leftovers! I used all ingredients as suggested, adding a little salt and 1/4 c. cream before serving over brown rice. My husband suggested topping it with a few cashews. I will make this again.

I just made this recipe in the instant pot; didn't have enough time for the crock pot, but it turned out great. My family gave effusive credit to the chef (me) and I give kudo's to whomever developed this recipe. I think it's perfect for company as well as family. I also used drumstick as that is what I had on hand. It was served over mashed potatoes with green beans for a side. Will definitely be a keeper. Thanks S. Banfield for sharing.

Grew up with this recipe. Was in our Joy of Cooking form the 1960's. Our version did not have cinnamon or tomatoes, so I omitted. We also added chopped green apples and unsweetened coconut at the end. I doubled the curry powder as we like a strong curry. So good and lots of memories. Thanks for the reminder. If I do this again Would add eggplant, as I love curried eggplant.

Excellent recipe! Substituted shrimp for the chicken, and left out the peppers, cinnamon and raisins.

Does the nutrition have the rice and or noodles or is this just plain? Doesn't seem too low carb to me. What am I missing?

Easy. Great flavor. Family loved it. Used egg noodles and a spoon to get every drop.

I'm not sure what everyone else did to this recipe, but mine turned out delicious and had even more flavor the second and third day!! I served it over rice. *the only thing different I did, was add more curry because I love it

Linus - Regardless of whether or not you personally liked or disliked the dish, your comment was rude and ignorant.

This is what the family said: not really sure what the chicken stuff is or what's going on with it,but it's good and we like it. It's spicy and sweet. What is it ? Is it Indian? African?

This is the worst recipe that I have ever made. It tasted so bitter and overwhelming that it went from the slow cooker to the garbage. I consider myself a very good cook and this looked like a good recipe to me. I don’t remember EVER throwing away an entire dinner, but this was terrible and there was nothing I could do to it to “rescue it.” If I could give this negative stars, I would.
