Curried chicken is a quick, crowd-pleasing one-pot dinner that’s great for a weeknight.
In this recipe, the exotic combination of curried chicken simmered in coconut and tomato stew makes for a mouthwatering and really amazing dish with wonderful depth of flavor.
Frankly, this curried coconut chicken goes right among the top dishes on my chicken favorites list, it really is so good.
Feel free to serve it over steaming hot rice or with vegetables. Yum!
And for an extra special experience, try throwing in a few cashews, I think that might work just great.
