    This recipe is a disgrace. Jamie Oliver has a tendency to put too much liquid in his recipes but what is above does even a disservice to him. In his book there is no instruction to add an extra 400ml of water. I did and made a disgusting soup. Take this recipe off the site. My dinner was ruined - 11/11/15

  • I totally agree with Ramsayisbest review. This recipe was just awful... it was like eating overcooked Chicken in soup. It was easy enough to make but way too much liquid, it even took away the taste of the coconut milk. There is no way that Jamie tested this recipe.....

  • Not sure what went wrong but it took over an hour to reduce. I read the recipe as adding 400ml of water. If I cooked it again I would not add any water but just add as required.

    It was quite good, better than a ready meal from m&s but not good as ones I'v had at restaurants.

  • I didn't mind it but my kids who usually like Chicken Tikka didn't like it at all. So I will not be cooking it again. I found it was a pretty average meal to use that many cals on (especially when you usually have rice with it). If the kids had liked it, I may have cooked it again but I'm not sure. - 2/1/11
