1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken thigh(s) (I used half organic thighs and half organic breasts)

  1. Is this something you make? I am going to try this -- I love Indian food but have to be careful because I have a child with nut allergies who can't have coconut.

    1. Yay -- I'm going to try this!

      Thank you!

        Yes, I made it this weekend. I mentioned it on another thread and was asked to post it on Home Cooking.

        I posted the recipe as I made it (type of chicken, brand of tomatoes, brand of yogurt).

        If nothing else, it will be the most expensive pot pourri you've ever smelled ;o)
