Curried Chicken and Rice

Curried chicken is one of those dishes that you can change every time you make it. You can use whole pieces of chicken, chicken breast or chicken thigh and each cut will give your dish a different flavour. If the change the vegetables, you’ll get a different flavour again. Potato is not a vegetable you would typically cook in a curry (with a few exceptions) but I LOVE putting potato into curries. As the potato cooks it soaks up the lovely curry flavour. Sometimes I think I’d prefer to make a potato curry than a chicken curry!

In this recipe for curried chicken I have simply stated “mixed vegetables” because any vegetables are great to use, but I encourage you to try a mixture with potatoes like I have.

You could use the leftovers in the curried chicken and rice parcels.
