Quick Boneless Chicken Curry Recipe

I make this super easy, super quick, super tasty chicken dish when I want to serve my family a wholesome meal but just do not have the time to be extravagant.

If you have all the ingredients on hand this dish really takes no time at all.

It’s not a traditional chicken curry but it’s just as tasty with rice or chapati.
