Active: 35 Total: 35

Taking the flavors of Indian cuisine as inspiration, this is a creative twist on traditional Shakshuka that involves eggs being poached in a rich tomato sauce. Reviewers loved the depth of flavor that came from the optional step of toasting spices when this dish was last featured in 2019.

Sauce was to die for, and the chicken was super moist. I used heavy whipping cream instead of yogurt in the sauce. Next time #DoubleTheSauce

Slightly overcooked the chicken. Should have used my airfrier instead because it ALWAYS turns out well when I do that. The salsa was a little bland - probably should have gone a little heavier on the salt/spice. Had potential for sure. Might make it again with those adjustments.

We enjoyed this. I made the original recipe and added roasted califlower with cumin seeds. Marinated chicken in advance. Came together quickly at dinner time. Everyone loved it.

Delicious, super easy once the marinade was on. Keep naan in the freezer for an easy pantry meal.

I loved the chicken but the salsa was weirdly bitter.
