Nutty Chicken Curry|HarassedMomI am loving fresh coriander at the moment. If I could put it into dinner every night I would! I use dried coriander a lot but forgot how divine fresh coriander is! I am trying to grow some so that I have it on hand at all times!Nutty Chicken Curry|HarassedMom

This recipe is a huge hit in our house – it has peanut butter in it which is almost a staple diet of almost everyone living here. I think it may be the sole reason that Emma isn’t under nourished. As a baby she would eat it by the spoonfuls.Nutty Chicken Curry|HarassedMom

The first time I made it I used chicken breasts, as per the recipe, but the second time I used chicken pieces and it actually came out much better, the pieces definitely do add more flavour.Nutty Chicken Curry|HarassedMom

Woolworths lactose-free yoghurt means I can start cooking more with recipes that call for yoghurt which I am loving.Nutty Chicken Curry|HarassedMom

    I am loving your recipes – I can’t wait to try this one.

    Based very loosely on your beans one the other day, I made a beans, tomato and sausage thing – OH it was divine. I’ve got a bit left which I’m hoarding for one of my meals ๐Ÿ™‚

      Doesn’t it feel like winning the lotto when you get a recipe that works and is delicious?
