I've made this recipe several times now, and although the original ingredients produce a wonderful result, I found that, for my own taste and that of my kitchen produce devotees, making a few changes has literally put the "cherry on top" for us!
The changes/additions I made are as follows ...
Instead of cashews I used smashed up flaked almonds (around 2-4mm pieces).
I included around 20g of dessicated coconut per portion (used together with the smashed almonds).
Instead of cornflower, I used pre-cooked, buttered mashed potato to thicken the sauce.
Instead of water I used coconut milk.
I added a tin of chopped tomatoes.
I also allowed enough time to gently brown the onions at the beginning to add another detectable dimension.
Then the secret ingredient ... one generous tablespoon of apricot jam (to add a deep richness, try adding this in while sealing the meat and allow to slightly caramelise, or nearer the end for straightforward sweetness).
That's it, but mind you, I was cooking for 8, so you'll need to scale-up the amount of chicken to suit.
Thanks Trina, you gave me a brilliant head start on a really successful dish.
