If you haven’t been able to tell by now, I love chicken curry dishes. There are so many possible variations, that I made it a goal to try as many as I can over my lifetime! So get used to the chicken curry posts.

The Taste:
This is calm chicken curry. It’s almost like a chicken curry for beginners, because its so easy to make and you can modify the strength of the curry taste by the amount of curry powder you put into the pot. I recommend putting in at least 1-2 tsp of curry powder to start and then you can always add more along the way. The red and green bell peppers took on the flavour of the coconut milk, blending right into the curry (which I didn’t expect). The peppers did however get a bit soft, so if you like them on the more firm side, add them into the pot at a later stage.For your convenience I have listed the recipe ingredients here. Click here for the recipe source and or a step by step directions on how to cook this recipe (including pictures)!
Recipe (Makes 4-6 servings):

  • 1 of each red and green bell peppers
  • 3-4 small red potatoes
  • 1.5 lb chicken breasts
  • 1 can coconut milk (I used low fat)
  • 1 scoop curry powder
  • A generous squeeze of Fish sauce

It’s about balance . . . 
Just because some recipes are made with the same ingredients, doesn’t mean you can’t be adventurous and create you own recipe. In general, you can create healthier recipes by:1. Adding in more vegetables
2. Making healthy food swaps: Cream for milk, white rice for brown rice, salt for herbs
3. Making your own sauces and curries
4. Using healthier cooking oils
5. Choosing leaner sources of protein such as chicken, fish, and legumes
6. Using your ‘inner chef’ instincts.

This recipe is simply yummy and takes no time at all to make. It is a perfect family dinner!
