Chicken Curry in a Breeze

The quintessential Indian Chicken Curry. It stands true to its name as you can prepare it when you are pressed for time. Takes no more than 35 minutes! Intense color and flavor coupled with the undertone of spices. I use boneless chicken thighs for this, but if you have chicken on the bone available that tastes fantastic! You can enjoy this chicken curry with some sticky rice, plain rice, chappati and naan 🙂
