I thought this was an excellent recipe. After reading everyone's advice, I held back on some of the spice - A bad idea for us. I made a few substitutions for what was in our cupboard. Traded out thighs for breasts, ginger garlic paste for garlic chili paste and ground ginger, cinnamon ground rather than stick, no cardamoms, parsey for bay leaves - this was a bad idea, clove ground for whole, coriander ground for seeds... I followed other peoples' comments about adding adding a bit of broth since breasts aren't as juicy as thighs and using the slow cooker. Both excellent ideas. Also, I added a ton of veggies (basically, veggies make me happy) - 4 carrots (2:1 for each breast), about 6 celery ribs (1.5:1), 8 baby red potatoes(2:1) , 4 tomatoes (1:1), 8 baby bell peppers (2:1). This filled up my entire huge slow cooker - low for 4 hours with froz ckn, pull out ckn, cut up and put back in, high for 1 hour. We ate what we could, then packed up some for lunches and froze the rest. Very excellent recipe, it will definately be used again.
