Southern (?!) Chicken Curry

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by rpgaymer

My sister-in-law works at a Southern restaurant in Mississippi, and surprisingly they have chicken curry on the menu. She got the recipe from the owner, and it's become one of my favorite chicken curry recipes. There's nothing Southern-tasting about it, but you'll be licking the flavorful sauce off of the plate. Try to use a high-quality curry powder, as it really makes a difference. I also like serving this with shredded coconut and chopped green onions.

This is a nice, quick, easy meal. I did think that an entire cup of milk was too much. I would try it with less next time. Thanks for posting!
