A few years ago, I finally decided to try Indian food.  MAN, I wish I would have tried it sooner because it is GOOD!  What I love most about curry, besides the spices, is that curry is so versatile.  You can make curries that are Indian inspired or Thai inspired.  You can make curry with meat OR vegetarian!  When I want meat in my curry, I always go for my Chicken Potato Curry recipe.  This is a Weight Watcher friendly recipe and it’s only 7 SmartPoints per serving.

 

My favorite type of curry is Indian and this recipe is my go-to curry recipe especially because I can make this curry without spending all day in the kitchen.  I’ve made curry quite a few times, and this recipe is definitely my favorite.  It’s healthy but full of flavor.  My husband put this on the repeat meal list, which I’ll take as a good sign.

 

Chicken Potato Curry is great because it’s basically a one-pot dish; less clean up always makes for a more enjoyable meal.  One way to speed up the cooking process is to do the prep work before you actually start cooking.  Cut up the potatoes, chicken and onions into 1/2 to 1 inch pieces then set the aside so they are ready to throw into the skillet.  Once all the ingredients are blended in the skillet, you basically just have to reduce to simmer, cover, and patiently wait!  That’s it!  Serve over rice or quinoa if desired.
