"Delicious delicately spiced chicken that is far from the norm for the American palate but not too weird so that even kids will eat it. Chicken is pleasantly saucy and goes well with rice."

As the submitter of this recipe, I have some comments. I tried to make it tonight following the recipe but I realize that I probably put double the spices on the chicken. I just sprinkle a healthy dose of curry, and then follow with about twice as much garam masala. If the sauce gets too low and we're having rice, I add another 1/2 cup wine and the rest of the can of broth (a little more than half). You can also buy one of the little bottles of wine and use that in the recipe instead of measuring. They are a little over 1/2 cp. Finally, at the end of cooking, I remove the chicken and bring the sauce to a hard boil for about 5 minutes until it is reduced. I don't know why that instruction didn't make it into the published version. Others have commented that they like it spicier and by all means bring out your spicy curry and red pepper if thats what you want. But I posted this recipe as something that children will eat while still keeping their more adventurous parents happy. I hope you all continue to enjoy this recipe. Its great features are that is quick, cheap, and has few ingredients. Enjoy!
I feel a little bad about rating this chicken so poorly but I am being sincere here. It was SOOO bad that I could not eat it. I'm not a picky eater, I love garam masala and curry and everything else in the dish. It just didn't work for me at all. I ended up having to make something else.
This is one of the best (and easiest to make!) curries I have ever had. Like others, I added more spices, as well as cayenne pepper to taste, as we like it hot! For the last 10 minutes of simmering I took the cover off the pan and allowed the broth/wine/vinegar mixture to reduce to a creamy glaze, which I served over the chicken. We paired this with a cool salad to offset the heat for a delicious low-carb dinner!
This is a great, cheap recipe that is easy to make. I only gave it four stars because I did have to alter it a bit. First, I used Madras curry powder. As I have 5 different jars of curry powder in my pantry, I felt I was taking a risk on this but chose well I think. Second, I used regular chicken broth instead of the low sodium and it still did not have enough salt. Simply add salt for more flavor. I spiced it up with a half teaspoon of extra spicy indian chili powder. This gave it a much needed kick. I also added a bit of flour mixed with water to thicken the gravy up some. Pour it over short grain brown rice and its awesome. Enough for four meals given a side. I'm definitely adding this one to my standard recipe list.
Absolutely beautiful........no change to the recipe. The flavor was wonderful!
This is one of those great recipes; few ingredients, simple and quick with a surprisingly tasty result. I probably used a lot more curry than called for, but we like things a little spicier. I added some green beans the last few minutes and I could see a number of vegetables options that would work with this. Over jasmine rice, it was enjoyed by all. Thanks for this great simple recipe!
Excellent, especially after adding cayenne, salt, and garlic powder.
Really good recipe, I substituted balsamic vinegar for the red wine vinegar (since I didn't have any) and it was still really great, easy and pretty quick!
