Massaman Chicken

Massaman Chicken

This recipe is from donna hays most recent magazine, I have made a couple of alterations to it, only due to what was in the freezer and cupboard, most recipes can be changed just a little, when you have a food intolerance sometimes a couple of changes are all that is required.
