    I love this!!I have made this about 10 times now, and its been great every time. A regular favourite in my house! I use chicken breasts istead of the thighs/drumsticks and use fat free greek yogurt to make it a bit healthier. I make up this whole amount for this recipe for two chicken breasts.  -  06 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
