Curry-And-Yogurt Braised Chicken Thighs

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by crrllssn

This recipe is from Food and Wine. I love curries, but so many of my recipes are too labor intensive for a week-night meal. This is relatively quick and easy. It's a great summer-time meal, when you can use farm-fresh produce. When fresh corn is not available, substitute 1/2 C frozen corn.

Wonderful curry dish!!!! I really love the flavor of the tomatoes with the curry. The corn is tasty in there too!! I used canned corn and roasted red bell pepper from a jar because I couldn't find fresh of either of those. Used roma tomatoes and I left out the water because I thought the tomatoes would have plenty and they did. Loved the heat of the serrano, it was just right. I used a sweet curry powder instead of the madras because I thought the serrano would be hot enough. I like a little heat but not so much that you can't taste the flavors so this worked out great! Great recipe, thanks so much for posting!
