Curry Chicken

Remember the good old days when you savored curry chicken every time you ordered cai png in hawker centres or your curry chicken with baguettes? This time, let’s recreate the magic at home!
Don’t belittle this seemingly simple dish of just chicken and potatoes. The spice paste and curry leaves certainly packs a punch! We would recommend that you allow the curry to soak in the chicken and potatoes at least for an hour though, to get the ideal taste desired. This easy-to-make baby here is ideal for a weekday family dinner with an extra bowl of rice or a loaf of bread. Yummy in the tummy!
