Quick Chicken Curry

Healthy, packed with veggies Quick Chicken Curry which even the kids love !

Quick Chicken Curry is one of our most go-to recipes when I have run out of ideas for dinner or we had been busy during the day, leaving us little time to cook dinner.

I do not always add the Baby Corn, but it is a nice touch and goes wonderfully with the rest of the ingredients - not to mention, adding color as well.

The Chicken Curry is so packed with veggies and you can even stretch the dish a bit more by adding some extra Beans, Broccoli or Mushrooms, either all three, or only or two of them.

None of the veggies take long to cook, and besides, you do still want that crispness, especially in the Broccoli. Adding Coconut Milk is just a must for me, to any Curry dish as it provides so much flavor and if you feel like it, add more, a saucy Curry is the best !

I have found that the Soy Sauce adds more than enough saltiness, but you might want to check the seasoning a minute or two before serving.

By mixing the Cornflour with the Turmeric, you will have Chicken cubes with an awesome color, and it looks so very appetizing.
