Quick Coconut Curry Chicken

So by now y’all know me + curry = lovelovelovebfflovelove. Thanks to Stephan, I love all things curry! My issue with curry and other stews is that they really taste good after they’ve been cooking low and slow. But, what is a girl to do when I want to stew on a Tuesday night? So, I came up with this quick recipe that will feed a big family or you for lunch for the week!



Now, I use 2 red potatoes, because potatoes don’t bother me and I like how it thickens the sauce. However, if you know you are sensitive to potatoes leave it out or use a Japanese Sweet Potato.



So that you know, that this recipe is legit, my mother in law – a Jamaican native – asked for the recipe after I made it for her. I mean, I’m not trying to toot my own horn or anything…. but….




Moving on! I like to serve this up with Cauliflower Rice.. in a bowl… with a spoon… and 10 bibs, because it seems that anytime I make curry it finds a way on my shirt… am I alone in this?? I can’t be.

Also, you can add more veggies if you choose – seriously use whatever you have. Curry is such a great vessel that way. You have veggies that are about to go bad? Throw ’em in!



Make this for dinner tonight and enjoy the rest of the week for lunch! It reheats beautifully.
