This is another great recipe. Must be prepared in advance (because of the marinade) but incredibly tasty and very impressive as a part of a buffet or as a main meal.

This great indian recipe is similar in concept the the Indian Whole Chicken Recipe (which also works with chicken pieces), however, this sauce is less sweet and more spicy.

Recipe: Curried Chicken Pieces

Summary: This is similar in method to the Indian Whole Chicken recipe, but the flavour is less sweet. Another great recipe though.
