Did it with cauliflower instead of broccoli because we love curried cauliflower and skipped the rice. Easy and so good!
Everything was good but could've used a bit more flavor. Pretty easy to put together.
Great meal, loved the flavor of the chicken!
I liked the chicken. The vegetables were okay. I liked using riced cauliflower instead of a grain. The yogurt sauce wasn't delicious to me but it wasn't awful either. I liked some on my vegetables but preferred the chicken without it.
Easy to make and delicious. I really liked the cauliflower rice with it and I added more broccoli.
So delicious! I'm glad it had the cauliflower and broccoli to balance out the somewhat unhealthy chicken thighs! Pretty easy to throw together.
