Easy Chicken Curry In A Hurry

I’m borrowing a line from Rachel Ray: I call this my Chicken Curry in a hurry. This dish is really simple and takes no time to make that is if you remembered to thaw the chicken.

Chicken curry is one of my family’s favorite dishes, I usually use bone-in chicken pieces to make this but when I’m busy and have little time to cook, I use skinless chicken thigh fillet because it cooks really fast, you may substitute chicken breast if you don’t like dark meat. I use fresh coconut milk here but if you don’t have it, canned coconut milk is okay. This dish is really, really good with hot rice. Try it! :)
