Chicken Curry in a Hurry

Health, Recipes, Recipes - Gluten-Free, Recipes - Main Dishes April 23, 2013

I don’t know why, but I always seem to forget about how quick and easy it is to make a pot of chicken curry.  Or shrimp curry.  Or whatever-you-want-to-throw-in-the-pot curry.  This is something I should make more often because not only is it quick and versatile, but my family gobbles it up every time.

All you need is a can of coconut milk, a jar of green curry paste, chicken broth, fish sauce (if you have it, no worries if you don’t), and some chicken and vegetables.  I had some gorgeous rainbow carrots and leeks from my CSA basket to use, but you could throw in some regular carrots, red bell pepper and onion.  I think asparagus and mushrooms would also be great in this.  Use whatever you like best!

This chicken curry takes only 15 minutes to put together.  That’s faster than ordering take-out!  Serve over rice or noodles…or rice noodles.  Enjoy!

    Yum! Sounds really good. Hmmm, I wonder if this could be converted to a crock pot recipe. What do you think?

    I printed this one. Will have to put a few things on my list. It will be easier than going to get take out. Healthier too.
