I had to adjust this dish to make it work. I turned it into a butter chicken stew. There was little flavor to begin with (double everything) and added in two yellow onions. I found that two tablespoons of cornstarch/cold water thickened it up nicely. The original is basically boiled chicken and pepper water. Read More
