Ratings & Reviews



The salsa taste was over-powering. Smelled fantastic cooking all day though, sadly we were disappointed.


Super easy to make. Very tasty. It's easy to alter the recipe if you prefer spicier or less spicy meals by simply using a different strength of Salsa and/or Curry powder.


The kids loved it! Could have used some more cream cheese. Next time!




winner all around!! I make a double recipie and freeze individual portions with rice for future lunches. It's a real hit at work too! I cant tell you how many people have asked for this recipie! I do find the salsa is overpowering so we use half salsa and half tomatoes. Canned or fresh we have used both.


I've made it twice and it was a big hit! Super easy! Super yummy!


Do you put the chicken in thawed or frozen?


Te entire family really liked it. Great idea for a workday meal.


I have now made this twice. It's probably the easiest curry recipe I have ever made and full of flavour. I stuck to the recipe and it turned out perfect. The only thing is I would make sure to use boneless meat as it will fall apart.


I made this recipe with a large (796ml) can of salt-free diced tomatoes, a generous scoop of minced ginger & garlic paste, three previously frozen chicken breasts, along with the listed ingredients: 2 tbsp curry and chopped onion. Since there was not that much chicken to cook, it was ready after about 2 1/2 hours on high. I didn't remove the chicken when I added the cream cheese - light herb & garlic - and I served it over rice noodles into which I put frozen broccoli for the last 4 minutes of boiling. The result was tasty and tangy, albeit a bit watery - and far from the curry to which I'm accustomed. Still a valid recipe from the perspective of nutritionally balanced.


Good - I made with chicken breasts and doubled the curry powder. I also added chopped cilantro with the cream cheese. I think I will follow the other suggestions about using canned tomatoes instead of the salsa next time.


This was surprisingly fantastic! I've shared this recipe with friends who love it as much too! Normally I'm not a fan of chicken in a crock pot but this is delicious!


This has been a big hit in our house we have had it a few times now and we love ours best served with good basmati rice. So quick and easy and very economical.


This was FANTASTIC considering not a lot of ingredients and super easy!!! Tastes a bit like a canadian version of butter chicken!! My entire family, including the picky munchkins, really enjoyed this dinner....perfect for the busy family!


I loved this recipe. will difinetely do it again


Overall the flavour of the dish was okay but I definitely wouldn't call this Chicken Curry. Could barely taste the curry, all I could taste was the salsa...and the colour, not at all what the pictures looks like, it was really red. Very disappointed as my husband and I love Indian food. Will NOT make this again.


Fantastic....will make again. I used chicken breast pieces and they were so moist and tasty with the sauce. This is going to be a regular recipe in our house.


My family loves this quick and easy recipe and I love making it. We have eaten this at least three times since it was in the What's Cooking magazine and I have shared the recipe with two friends who also think it is just great. Thanks Kraft!


I made this tonight for dinner. The house smelled great when I got home. The only things I changed were I used a little extra curry and boneless chicken thighs. The dinner turned out fabulous. We are not usually huge curry fans, but this was really good. Tonnes of flavour- definitely a make again dinner


I wanted to make this dish but did not have 8 hours to put it in the slow-cooker so I did it on the stovetop - simmered it for an hour on low....was really good with basmati rice and chutney! I also used half thighs and half chicken breasts - all boneless.


Super easy and flavorful. I added garlic to the slow cooker for added flavor.


We loved this recipe! The flavour is just delicious. The only thing I would change is to substitute chicken breast, or any boneless chicken, for chicken thighs. I made it with bone-in thighs the first time and we kept having to pick the bones out of our mouths while eating!


WOW--we loved this! I served it over spiral noodles and added edamame. Great dinner!


loved it was wonderful to come home and just make the rice after a hard day's work. Good also a couple days later could'nt get enough of it. Gave the recipe to the girls at work.


My suggestion would be to use a large can of tomatoes instead of salsa. I would throw in onion and add some garlic and ginger to it with the curry. Then at the end I would put in coconut milk (or you could use cream or plain yogurt) instead of cream cheese. Mmm....


We loved it with basmati rice. I doubled the curry & cheese.


Great recipe,SO easy went out for day came home made rice, dinner was ready.Everybody loved it.


I loved this recipe, so quick, so easy. I am Indian and this is not Indian type of curry, but it is still very good. I used mild salsa so my son would eat it. instead of adding cream cheese I added half a can of coconut milk. I also added some ginger & garlic paste for extra flavour.


I loved this recipe, it was easy, it smelled great all day and even my three year old picky eater had three helpings! It was mild enough for the kids to enjoy and I will make this again!


My husband and I typically love any chicken curry dish however did not enjoy this at all. Very disappointed as typically you can't go wrong with Kraft Kitchens Meals. Salsa wastoo much - very salty - not much in the way of curry taste. Would not make again.


Absolutley delicious and SO simple to make. Was great the day we made it & even better as leftovers!


Very Good. I puree the sauce and added some coconut milk because I didn't have any cream, I also added a little salt.


The recipe would have been good if it weren't for the salsa. I found the salsa much too salty. I had to add 5 cups of water plus noodles and a potato to get the extra salty flavour out. If i could do it all again, I would substitute the salsa for a can of no salt added diced tomatoes


It's so easy and very tasty.


This was a super easy recipy to make. It was very tasty. I used a med salsa so it had a little bite to it :-) I would definatly make this again.
