Chicken Curry

My husband and I have traveled quite a bit and have a worldly palate. Surprise surprise we love to eat. Chicken Cury 2

While we love having the chefs make curry at restaurants, it’s always hard to order it for our son. Most times asking for mild or no spice is still spicy! I decided to make a toned down version and it was delicious. This dish is also inspired by my roots and is something I ate a lot when I was little. Hope you enjoy it!


  • 1.5 pounds boneless chicken (i use thigh meat, but breast will work)
  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 medium size potatoes
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 2 tbs fish sauce
  • 1 c. coconut milk
  • 2 tbs curry powder (use 1.5 tbs first and taste if too spicy)
