    Very Good
    This recipe was easy to make and it looked and tasted great. The red tomatoes, green spinach and the yellow from the turmeric made for a colorful dish. I cooked it all at once instead of setting the chicken aside, and just poured some boiling water on the spinach to wilt it. Will make again! - 3/3/10
