We all know there are thousands of different curries out there which means there are even more chicken curries and variations of the recipe. This is one I grew up with and always looked forward to. It’s a simple recipe that is extremely easy, quick and makes for great leftovers. It’s messy (as you can see from the pictures) but it is so darn good!
