We don’t order take out a lot, but whenever we do it’s either Mexican or Indian. And ever since ordering Indian last week, my boyfriend and I have both been craving more curry!

Instead of ordering take out again, even though that was so temping because the dishes we ordered last week were so tasty, I decided to get into the kitchen and create a curried chicken recipe of my own.

This dish takes minimal time to put together, so it’s perfect for week nights when you have nothing prepared and want dinner on the table within 30 minutes. The tomato coconut curry sauce is absolutely delicious, so I like serving this dish over cauliflower rice or white rice, if you tolerate it, as either of those options act as the perfect base.

When you order take out, what are your go-to restaurants or cuisines?

I used this curry powder and it provided the perfect flavour and heat!
