    Super simple and very good. Tempted to add some roasted nuts next time for some "crunch"...

    This was so delicious. I made it with whole boneless thighs (I had forgotten to cut them into strips). It was easy. I loved it! I am not a cook. I live alone in NYC so ordering in is the norm. Or if I cook, I make the same sad grilled chicken breast with salad. I love this website and so glad I became a member. Next up: Keto pizza. I am saving so much money not eating out or ordering in.

    This is a winner! I made a double batch for a quick supper this week! Wonderful! It feels exotic but very easy to put together and I am a seasoned cook! This one will be holding a place in my repertoire!

    Hi can anyone tell me if the seasonings in this are spicy - is this recipe little kid-friendly?

    Garam masala is fragrant and floral, but neither it nor turmeric are usually spicy.

    This would also be nice with some Kashmiri Chili Powder for some heat.

    is that O.K to consume so much saturated fat?
