    Very good! My husband is a very picky eater and really enjoyed it. I did feel like it needed a little salt. I served it with naan. It was a filling and healthy meal!  -  22 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was very good and so easy to make. My only recommendations would be to make sure the sweet potatoes are cubed evenly--makes it easier to get them softened and cooked. My husband cubed them larger than I wanted and it took a bit longer to cook. Overall, made recipe as written and it was delicious! Served along with saffron rice I made in my rice cooker.  -  15 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was an good recipe. I'm not sure if it called for canned sweet potato but I used fresh. After it was cubed, I softened them a bit so they would be thoroughly cooked. I prepared the eggplant before cooking by putting the cut chunks between salted paper towels to drain the fluid while the chicken cooked. I also added a teaspoon of Italian spice mix, garlic powder, smoked paprika and salt and pepper to taste to the chicken before I cooked it. After I added the eggplant, I added 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, cinnamon, graham marsala. I served it as is with some pita bread. I will definitely put this on my keeper list. Very tasty and easy.  -  11 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
