Chinese Chicken Curry #FoodieExtravaganza

This Chicken Curry is not only absolutely delicious, it is ready in well less than half an hour.  You will never order take out again.

Welcome to the first Foodie Extravaganza of the New Year......

Happy New Year!!  I cannot believe it is already 2020.  As you read this post we are up north with our Traverse City family, ringing in the New Year.

However, Foodie Extravaganza, always falls on the first Wednesday of the month and, this month,  that just happens to be New Year's Day.  What better way to celebrate than with an easy peasy Chicken Curry recipe after all of the intense cooking and entertaining we have been doing?

Sneha of Sneha's Recipe is hosting today and asked that we join her in making Chicken Curry since January 12th is National Curried Chicken Day. 

Yes, this is actually a thing.  We have many food holidays throughout the year and this group celebrates as many as we can.  Let's see what Curried Chicken dishes the others are sharing today.....

I made this quick and easy weeknight chicken curry.  It takes longer to make the rice than it does to make the entire dish.  Perfect recipe....easy peasy and delicious.
