    My husband, kids and I loved this! I used fat free milk and made a double batch. My family is already looking forward to eating it again tomorrow.

    Update: Wow - this meal tastes even better the next day! AND my family has requested that we make this one a regular. Thank you again for sharing. - 2/1/10

    I thought this was great! I added two cloves of minced garlic in with the onions (which I increased to half of a small onion chopped), an extra tablespoon of butter, and I left out the apple and raisins. I also cut up two, whole chicken breasts and cooked them with the sauce. Spices were perfect. - 7/2/09

    I really enjoyed this! I substituted chickpeas and peas for apples. It's really easy to use canned chicken. - 11/6/07

    I made the curry sauce (but used coconut milk) and marinated the chicken and red potatoes in it. I served it with Garlic naan, and rice byriani. Totally awesome! - 2/18/11

    I loved it! I was jonesing for some Indian food (ALTHOUGH! I learned on Good Eats that curry isn't traditional Indian at all, but still, it's delicious!) and found this recipe. Added garlic, took out the apple and raisins, and had it over brown rice. Could use some more curry&salt though. - 7/7/10

    My husband and I loved this recipe. Since his trip to Jamaica, we have been searching for a great curry recipe, & this one is by far the best & easiest. I substituted cranberries for the raisins & added xtra garlic. I doubled everything xcpt the apple & spices--very good over Jasmine rice!! - 2/2/10

    Finally, a curry recipe WITHOUT coconut milk! Very good--I used craisins instead of raisins because it's what I had on hand, and really enjoyed it. Will definitely make again! Served over brown rice. - 9/15/11

    This was pretty good. I doubled everything and I added another tbs of curry, 1/2 a tbs of red chili (I don't like things too spicy), 1/2 tbs turmeric and 1/2tbs cardamom.
    I left the apples and raisins out and put squash in it. It needs about 30 minutes or so of simmering to get the squash cooked. - 1/4/11

    very good, though husband said just ok. I had it over spaghetti squash to decreased calories from rice. I might make it with a yellow pepper to spice a bit more for me. - 11/11/07

    Big hit at my house! I didn't have any chicken broth, so I used a can of cream of chicken, which turned out really well. It also saved time, as I didn't have to wait for the sauce to thicken. I used 2 chicken breasts and had plenty of curry sauce without changing the amounts listed. - 12/9/11

  • My husband and I love Thai food and yellow curry, so I was excited to try this. :) What I love is that it's super simple, using ingredients I always have. 4 that convenience alone, it's a good recipe. Overall a yummy dish, will cut down on the salt next time. Added veggies, will add more next time! - 12/31/12

  • loved the recipe. instead of ginger i used lemon pepper seasoning. i also doubled up on some portions of the recipe (such as the apple, raisins, broth, and curry powder) in order to have more for leftovers. - 6/25/12

  • Easy and delicious. I like how the flour helps thicken up the sauce. Not too spicy for my wife yet spicy enough for me.
    Changes: Used turkey broth instead of chicken, used coconut milk instead of regular, used grilled chick thighs instead of breast. - 4/21/12

  • I made this for company and it was delicious. I bought the grocery store cooked chicken (removed the skin and used only breast meat.) I added more curry and some turmeric for extra colour. It was a hit and just as good the next day. Thanks! I'll make this again! - 3/27/12

  • I doubled the chicken since I needed more fat and protein, and I omitted the raisins since I am not crazy about raisins so I decided I could skip some carbs that way. I also used fresh ginger root and added a dash of cinnamon. It was soooo good. And I can't wait to experiment with it more!! - 4/1/11

  • This was so good. I have never had chicken curry before always wanted to try it and now that I have this recipe I will certainly be making it a lot more now!! I kept the chicken breast whole instead of cutting it up. So good! - 3/14/11

  • I have had this in my "Need to try dinner rotation" Cookbook for awhile now. Finally made it tonight. Loved it! The only thing I changed was it seemed a little flat to me so I added an 1/8 of a tsp of grated lemon zest. Which means I grated 1/4 of half of a lemon. It totally brightened it up. - 9/21/09
