    Love this recipe! Left out the tomato sauce, I personally wanted to taste more curry then tomatoes and it was perfect. Added some chilli powder and red pepper flakes for a little more spice and wow. Thank you for sharing! Will be making it again.

    I noted what a couple of reviewers said about this recipe being too tomato-y. I left out the tomato sauce and the sugar, used my own freshly ground curry powder blend (cumin, coriander, turmeric and cayenne), added ginger. Served it over white rice with a tiny dash of homemade garam masala to give it an aromatic boost and a few fresh cilantro leaves for color. It was very fast and tasty for a weeknight meal. I would make this again with the modifications.

    We took out the diced tomatos and added some dry red chili peppers and crushed red pepper but overall very tasty

    If you like a strong tomato flavor, this dish is for you. Easy to make too. I wanted more curry flavor. Probably won't make it again.

    I love this recipe! The only thing I did differently was use half of the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce from what the recipe asks otherwise it is way too liquidy for my taste..

    Followed the recipe without changing things up like I usually do and it came out perfect! I’ve made it a few times and has become a favorite and easy weeknight dinner option!

    I’ve made this about ten times now, an excellent recipe I substitute the tomato sauce for paste so I don’t have to simmer as long and I don’t find the need for sugar but I do add lots of salt Highly recommend

    Came out good but would’ve been better with pineapples added for more flavor

    It was good! Next time I will use chicken thighs since the breast meat didn’t absorb the flavor as much as we would like. Overall, the flavor is very good and as mentioned by another, the aroma lingers in the house.

    So good! I made a double batch so there were lots of leftovers, and they went quickly!

    Turned out great!! A little too spicy for me so I’d put a little less curry , and remove the sugar all together .

    Can't categorize to any particular cuisine...tastes nice though. Adding South Indian curry powder adds some extra flavour.

    Easy, delicious, and I loved walking into our home and smelling curry for days. I omitted the sugar based on other reviews, but I might try it the second time around to taste the difference.

    This is so good! Three tablespoons of sugar was a little too much, and I ended up adding more salt for balance, but overall it was delicious!

    great! smooth and delicious. I didn't use tomato sauce, just the can of chopped tomatoes, and a chopped red pepper.
