This was really missing something. It's not bad, in fact I made it twice thinking I did something wrong the first time! Maybe some garlic sauteed with the onion and apple? Someone else might try that, cause I'm not trying it a third time . . .

This is Indian comfort food. I would make this once a week if I could get away with it. This is definitely one of my faves.

This was yummy, I didn't have garam marsala, or cumin, so I put in a teaaspoon of allspice instead of garam marsala, it gave it a nice, sweet flavor but not overpowering. I think that next time I'll try it with the right spices. But it was very nice for something different.

Delicious! I just discovered I liked Indian food last weekend. The only modification I made was I used "mild curry powder" from my work (world market) which was yellow and not red. Followed everything else to a T. The light coconut milk combined with the apple, onion, garam masala, and curry powder makes a flavorful, creamy sauce! next time i will serve with basmati rice but all i had on hand was brown rice so i mixed that with some onion, bell pepper, chicken broth, golden raisins and garam masala. my husband who hates curry said he was "pleasantly surprised" and that it was "a million times better than the last time (he) had curry" though he still doesn't like the flavor of curry itself. oh well it's a start. Highly reccomended!

This was wonderful chicken curry! I used red curry paste in the sauce instead of the curry powder on the chicken and it turned out great. A friend who lived in Thailand came over for dinner and made curried chicken and it tased the same as this recipe....I think this one was a little better :o)!

This is a fabulous recipe! After 35+ years of cooking experience, this was my first time making Indian food. I had to purchase two new spices for this dish and it was worth every penny of it. My husband and daughter have both asked me to make this again. I thought the spices were adjusted perfectly and I was surprised that the meal wasn't as spicy hot as some cajun dishes I've fixed. I'll definitely add this to my favorite recipe file.

This was an amazing dish. We simply loved it. I did add some more 'heat' with cayenne but everything was simply superb. I love the McCormick spices and was so thrilled to find them in my local market. I DO NOT WORK for McCormick!!!! :) Simply put this recipe is a 5*keeper. Don't judge me~ Judge the recipe!
