Sweet Potato Chicken Curry

By November 14, 2013January 14th, 2022No Comments

I love curry. I love sweet potatoes. I love a sweet, spicy, creamy peanut sauce. Thus…I LOVED this recipe!! The sweet potatoes added a natural sweetness to the curry that went perfectly with the creamy sauce. This recipe uses yellow, red and green curry which makes for a really fun combination of flavors. If you haven’t bought curry paste before you can find it in the Asian isle. You keep it in your fridge and it is great in any of your favorite curry dishes. This recipe is great because you can add vegetables that your family enjoys. We went with sweet potatoes, carrots, onions and green and red bell peppers. No matter the combination, this meal is warm and comforting on a cold, fall night. If you are a vegetarian or gluten free, don’t pass this dish up! Omit the chicken and add more vegetables–even I could do this meal meatless (and that says a lot for me). Loved it, loved it, loved it!!
