    Tried this tonight, super easy and tasty. For our tastes, will add a bit more tomatoes next time.

    I'm cooking this got the second time, tonight. I added red bell pepper to sweat down with the onion. The first time, I also added a pound of shrimp. This is a fantastic recipe. Since we like a little extra kick, I also add in cayenne pepper before the coconut milk.

    LOVED it!!!! Second time making today. I did improvise a lil on some of the ingredients like instead of coconut cream I used evaporated milk because that's what I had. Also used ginger powder and tomato soup. Didn't have chicken breast so used split chicken quarters instead. Being large pieces, boiled them first before continuing with recipe! A lot of improvising BUT Delicious!!!!!

    I love this recipe. I'm Jamaican so I add a teaspoon scotch bonnet powder and 2 tablespoons tika masala. The tika masala takes this dish to the next level!
