Really tasty. I just threw it in the crockpot for a couple hours with the veggies I had on hand and served it over rice. We really enjoyed the flavors. Great recipe!

This was an interesting stew. In the first few spoonfuls it wasn't looking very promising. BUT... the more you eat it the more it grows on you! Although not what I expected, I did ultimately enjoy it.

I have made this recipie several times and felt compelled to review it. I did this recipie on the stove instead of in the microwave, and it still came out wonderful. I almost always have used more than one pound of the chicken breasts (more like a pound and a half or two pounds). Also, one time I tried to use half and half instead of coconut milk because I couldn't get to the store and it made the recipie way too thin (the consistency was terrible) and not good. If you pretty much follow these instructions to a T, it's a keeper. Great one!!!

This was FANTASTIC! Instead of microwaving I cooked this on the stovetop, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was soo yummy. I served in soup caraffes over basmati rice and I couldn't get enough. 2 bowls for dinner, and more re-heated the next day for lunch. This is a recipe that I will be making again and again (during the cold months, of course). Thanks so much!!

Of course I had to change/add some things: I added some fish sauce, a bit of sugar and the juice of 1 lime. I did not have lima beans so a few minutes before the end I added a can of peas and, by the way, I used 4 chicken thighs which I previously browned in oil: SUPER DELICIOUS and SUPER EASY!!!I never thought that this tpe of a dish could be so tasty cooked in the micro!! It could certainly be served for company with a garnish of cilantro leaves for instance.

I decided to cook this on the stovetop instead and it came out wonderfully. You can eat this with rice or by itself.

This recipe was absolutely delicious. I did have to add much more cumin and curry than specified, but I do love spicy foods. Also this was nice served over brown rice and fresh green peppers. I also used instant mashed potatoes instead of regular (I forgot them at the store), but it worked really well and served to thicken the dish as well.

This recipe was super easy and very good. I think there's a typo, though - I used a entire 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes and it came out fine. My only complaint - not spicy enough. Add more hot sauce to taste.
