Sprinkle with coconut oil to serve.

I have made this twice. I Followed the recipe exactly the first time I made it. I do this with all the recipes I rate to be fair, but I liked it even better the second time I made it. The second time I made it I seasoned the chicken with the spices and browned the thighs in light tasting olive oil with onion slices, then added the tomatoes. Simmered for 45 minutes, then added a splash of white wine, lime juice and fresh cilantro and cooked a minute or 2 longer when wine was cooked down. I Served it over white rice. Will definitely make again and again and use more tomatoes.

Okay. A little bit boring. I added a bit of cayenne to spice it up.

This was sooooo good. I only had 6 legs, I used a teaspoon of all the seasonings and through in a can of tomato sauce for extra gravey over rice. I also only used 2 tomatos. Yum yum. I will use this again and again.

Very good as is. I used garlic flavored oil and less fresh garlic ( for my tummy)

This was really good as is! I did make a few changes in the end (I know people hate when you change a recipe- but this was really adaptable and I only made a few changes after tasting the final product)...I didn't have chili powder so I added some chili flakes instead. I didnt have ginger, so I skipped it. I used boneless skinless thighs and browned them in the coconut oil but with the tomatoes and spices in the beginning. Once it was done and I tasted it I added a tblsp. of sugar and a tblsp. of curry powder and a dash of salt. Adding these few ingredients really brought everything together, but it would have been great without. While browning the chicken I also added a chopped onion and some sliced mushrooms I had in the fridge. I called it 'Indian chicken and tomato stew' and served it over rice. I served it to company and everyone raved and even wanted the recipe. I will be making this again. It was delicious! This is a definite keeper!

Added mushrooms, raisons, saffron, and sliced almonds. Very good.

This is so good. I never have turmeric, so I skip that part. And canned tomatoes do a fine job. Excellent served over spaghetti.

This menu was a nice change and consisted of items I always keep in my pantry. I will try next time to add the tomato past or a little cornstarch so the sauce is a little thicker. But other than that, it was a great recipe!
