Curried Chicken, Lentil & Mushroom Skillet

"A gluten-free, comfort food dinner, completed in one skillet. (The secret is a hint of coconut! I use 'young coconut juice with pulp' to save on unnecessary sugar & calories. The plain yogurt stirred in at the end is not a necessity, but it does add a little tang and makes the sauce look nice & rich."

  1. I'm sorry but we found this to be very bland, and didn't care for the lentil "mush". It was better the next day as leftovers after adding salt & more curry powder. I don't seem to be able to click the star rating but I would give it 3.


I am an artist who considers food just as much of an artform as any other media. My husband & I both love cooking, love the joy of sharing good food that we made. Became Gluten Free a ways back and am always on the hunt for GF recipes that I can enjoy AND that my husband won't feel deprived eating with me!
