    I loved this. So easy. I too, used smoked paprika and added a couple of shakes of chilli flakes. Reckon I'll up the curry powder next time too.  -  05 Feb 2014


    Made this following the recipe but used smoked paprika - love the delicate smoky flavour it gives. Served on steamed rice with some fresh veg from the garden, No leftovers so must have been good.  -  26 Apr 2010


    I make this quite a bit but I used BLSL chicken breasts instead of skin on chicken pieces, I flip flop the apricot jam and dijon mustard amounts. and I also increase the curry powder to a full tablespoon. I like to serve this with vegetable fried rice or a vegetable stir fry and steamed white rice. Great for a quick weeknight dinner. NOTE: This is also good with pork.  -  29 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
