"This chicken has an Indian flair to it, but it is mild and will be loved by anyone who loves the flavor of cilantro. It requires some work so it is only for people who are adventurous and looking for something new. Adjust the amount of cilantro--adding up to an extra bunch--to suite your tastes. Try serving with bread and rice." — YAKUTA

1 (3 pound)
whole chicken, cut into pieces
minced fresh ginger root
jalapeno chile pepper, stem and seeds removed
ground unsalted cashews
heavy whipping cream
salt to taste
Moist chicken, superb sauce flavour,light and unusual. Well worth the effort. Serve with basmati and 'pappadums'.
I'm sorry, but this sauce basically tastes like milk and cilantro, no melding of the flavors what so ever. It aches for spices and seasonings, namely salt. Plus the cream never thickens up because the juices from the chicken keep it thinned out so the consistency was disappointing. I rinsed the thin sauce off the chicken and shredded it.
I made this dish and served it over white rice. The whole family loved it. It was quite easy to make and very tasty. For a lower fat version, substitute the cream for fat free evaporated milk or half and half.
A new favorite. Add a little ginger, garlic, and salt to the chutney.
This recipe was not too difficult and I loved the cilantro taste!
This was quite good & a bit different from the run of the mill chicken type cream dishes. Next time I think I'll use boneless chicken breasts & cut them in chunks and add to cream sauce.
DO YOU LIKE CILANTRO? IF SO, THIS IS YOUR RECIPE!! YUMMO!! I USED BONELESS/SKINLESS.. MIXED GINGER ROOT AND GARLIC INTO CREAM. COOKED AS DIRECTED.. TOOK LONGER THAN DIRECTED.. DID NOT THICKEN AS RECIPE SUGGESTS, HARD TO THICKEN WITH THE CHICKEN JUICE LEAKING INTO THE CREAM.. WHEN CHICKEN WAS DONE I TOOK UP CHICKEN AND ADDED CREAM /CHICKEN JUICE MIX INTO BLENDER WITH THE CILANTRO MIX.. SERVED OVER CHICKEN.. JUICE WAS AS THIN AS WATER UPON REHEATING.. BUT....... THE FLAVOR WAS AMAZING!!!!! CHICKEN WAS TENDER.....
I'd never baked chicken in cream before, but found it a little odd because the fat separated from the water and formed 2 layers in the baking dish. When I'd finished, the flavor was okay - but too much work is required here for a mediocre end product.
