Can I use whole chicken pieces? I’ve started buying mixed chicken pieces as it is a lot cheaper, hoping I can use them in thks recipe. Thanks

Thanks for this recipe Gail! I doubled the recipe, used 2 chopped chillis, added a bit more curry powder for strong flavor and really enjoyed the result. A tasty curry that went great with plain rice. Also ridiculously easy prep. I will definitely do this again and up the chillis cos I like it hot.

In with the chicken 🙂

The ingredients list calls for an onion. The method makes no mention of an onion.

I used a 375ml can of coconut cream. It will serve 2-3 people

Personally I’d use a standard can around the 400ml size?
But I’ll see if I can get Gayle to confirm for you too 🙂

This is a superb recipe. I am on a low carb diet and I love slow cooking. The recipe is perfect and tastes great.
