Mashed sweet potatoes were good. We used chicken tenders and it was a bit too much marinade. Was yummy though, would make again.

Loved the sweet potatoes especially. This is the first Indian-spiced dish that my husband has raved about

This was really good, had to thicken it up a little bit w/ corn starch for my fiance's liking, but once we got it all seasoned, it was delicious.

A bit bland for a CS meal. Probably due to my family’s needs to change recipe (tamarind paste instead of tomato paste, less curry powder, more coconut milk...), but also prepped 5 days ago so maybe sweet potatoes no longer as fresh?

Chicken was good. I really liked the sweet potatoes and the asparagus (Paleo) but my 4 year old and husband weren't impressed. I think I'd make it again but I would use thighs, I gave drumsticks a chance and the price was great but I just don't like tendons...

Loved it. Husband did say he wanted it to be a little more spicy tho. Also loved the sides. I will definitely cook this again.
