Oh my goodness this looks incredible!! Must make it for dinner soon!!
I like super easy recipes that taste incredible-like this one!
The combo of spices in this recipe sounds fabulous! I had chili at a friends once that had cinnamon in it and it was amazing. I’ve never thought of using cinnamon or cloves with chicken. I’ll have to try this!
This looks incredible! Is it Indian? I’ve never heard of it before.

I love the flavors in this! Korma is one of my favorite dishes to order in an Indian restaurant.
