Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry: 3ten.ca

Chicken and sweet potato curry – it’s quick, easy and packs some full flavour. I did make one mistake, too much broth, so I’ll give you the updated version. Let’s get cooking!

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts, quartered
  • 1 1/2 cups of sweet potato, cut in 1 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons of curry powder and fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of hot sauce, lime juice and garlic
  • can of mini corn, bamboo shoots and coconut milk
  • large Spanish onion, diced

First, prep all of your ingredients. I peeled the sweet potato, yet if you’re a fan of leaving the skin on, then go for it!

Put everything, including the coconut milk, in a large freezer safe bag. Freeze and cook right from frozen when you’re ready.

Now, this is where I’ve adjusted the recipe. No need for broth – not at all.

I added in a carton of vegetable broth and it was far too runny – see below. It’s better without.

Done – after it cooks on low for 8 hours.

I’m not a fan of having to thaw freezer meals first – I can’t ever remember to take them out to thaw. This one works well directly from frozen, which is great.
