Coconut Chicken Curry



Curry has got to be one of my favourite dishes! Even in summer I find myself gravitating towards that coconut goodness loaded with veggies! When eating curry out at restaurants and takeaway places, it's easy to find your meal packed with unhealthy ingredients and toxins which ultimately comes out through your skin a lot of the time!


I've decided to adapt a healthy curry from a few of my favourite recipes and provide you with a delicious, nourishing Coconut Chicken Curry which will leave your skin glowing without sacrificing flavour. Also, these days I'm all about quick and easy meals that I don't have to do a lot of cleaning up for! Which means, if time isn't on your side, you have no excuses, this dish will not take more than 30-45 minutes to whip up and serve!
