So I made this recipe and I have a few things to say. It did turn out okay, but a lot was left out of the instructions and some things didn't make sense.

First off, I don't know where the idea of using 5 oz. of chicken came from. I used 2 BIG breasts. Also, I won't use olive oil again. The chicken didn't need it nor did the veggies. It didn't hurt, but if you don't want the extra cals, there's no need for it. Since the veggies are just a side, cook them in whatever you want that has less cals if you desire. Water, water/soy sauce, veggie broth... whatev... they're just a side.

I used Greek yogurt instead of regular... might be a no-brainer. And since I used 2 big chicken breasts, I used 1.5 cups of the yougurt. I just mixed the Greek yogurt, broth, corn starch, and curry in a separate bowl. Mixed it all up then poured it into the cooked chicken. I let it sit in there for about 10 more minutes on low.

I will be making all this again, but it was a bit bland. I added sea salt after cooking and that helped. Overall pretty good, but like I said, some things need to be addressed.

Wait 4 tbsp of olive oil is like 650 calories on its own. Even if the calorie count for this is only half of the listed ingredients that means the calorie estimate for this if off by a few hundred!! calories more than advertised.

But four tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil is like 650 calories on its own. Even if the stats are for one half of these ingredients doesn't that mean the count for this is off by a few hundred calories?

Do the stats shown (calories,carbs,etc.) mean both servings made or just one serving?

This recipe needs about twice the chicken, and a can of crushed tomatoes.

Do you have to add the cornstarch?
