“The 'curry' is in the combo of cumin, coriander, and ginger. I make this for my fiance, who doesn't like curry. He loves this.”

"Are you trying to torture us?" asked my husband when he saw what I was scooping up this recipie on top of a plate of rice (we have two fussy eaters, ages 5 and 8 - and maybe a 43 year old, too....). Well... he was the first one up for a second helping and that was before our two children voiced their approval of the meal as well. I added cornstarch, more broth and a blend of sour cream/milk to make it more 'soupy' like a wet curry(I didn't have any cream on hand) and followed the advice for a fresh chopped onion instead of the onion powder. Such an excellent, flavorful taste, especially for such little work. Thank you for posting it.



Since the spinach sounded like it may end up tasting a little like creamed spinach, I added an onion while cooking the chicken to make the flavor complete. I left most of the liquids in the pan (and I pre-cooked and drained the spinach), so I recommend reducing cream and/or broth by half or so. Good flavor... an interesting combo. Might be good over rice. Definitely not 4 servings. I suggest adjusting the recipe to use 1 breast per serving needed.



I tried the recipe as listed and it was bland. The next time I changed it a little - onion and bell pepper sauteed with the chicken, make sure you brown the chicken well, extra pepper flakes and extra garlic and shredded parmesan cheese on top. I served it over rice and my adult family loved it. The kids liked the chicken but picked the spinach out.
