Gotta love TJ's for the inspiration.
A hot pot of goodness loaded with tender pieces of chicken and veggies.
It's no secret that I love curry and Indian food. Something about the warm, flavorful spices are so very comforting to me. Morgan's not a huge fan but he tolerates it. The girls enjoy it like me and even Zach, happily ate up this dish.
If you like the flavors of curry or you're just looking to change up/spice up your dinner rotation, give this a try!
I was inspired to make it by the 2% coconut milk I found at TJ's. Even at 2%, this dish is super creamy. Almost a bit too creamy for me but I think that's why the kids like it.
Also, this is not a spicy dish so it's family friendly (although you know I had to add squirts of Sriracha to my own bowl).
The recipe is easily customizable in that you can add any veggies you have and chicken thighs are a must. Breasts will dry out and be tough. And the leftovers are even more amazing the next day!
