Chicken Curry

We love curry when the cooler weather comes and this one was a huge hit with the whole family.

Curry recipes can be notorious for lengthy ingredient lists but some days we just want something that isn't going to take us an hour to cook and will have us running all over the kitchen.

This recipe uses ingredients that are found in most pantries and will be ready in 20 minutes.

As usual, I tested this with on my family and the kids demolished it so it's safe to say, it's very family friendly! If you do like some spice in your curry though, red chilli can be added with the onion (remove the seeds if you don't want it too hot).

Cauliflower rice is the perfect side for this curry as it soaks up the sauce nicely.
