The chicken wasn't cooked at the 20 minute mark so I gave it another 10 and that was good. We doubled the chilli for a nice hit. Really nice and simple recipe.
My first attemp at using the CE. Two questions. First, are you meant to use cooked Chicken for this recipe as I had to increase cooking time by about 20 minutes until chicken cooked.
Nice and easy but a bit bland. Will try again but definitely need to cook off the onion, garlic, lemongrass and chilli paste first.....and increase chicken stock cube to one whole and add salt to taste.
Easy and delicious mild curry. This is the first recipe I've tried and I am very impressed.
Delicious and easy a winner ?
