I need to level with you though. I have never eaten curry other than this curry.

So is this authentic? I have no idea. Is it delicious. Yep!

I have family, friends, and neighbors that will verify that. One neighbor actually told me, she doesn’t like most curry recipes but she really liked this one because the curry flavor was not overpowering.

Winning. πŸ˜‰

I love the simplicity of the ingredients and preparation of this Clean Eating Chicken & Sweet Potato Curry. It has very few ingredients (7!) and takes no time at all to prepare. Saute the onions, brown the chicken, soften the sweet potatoes, and add in the frozen peas. All in one pot. In a matter of minutes.

See? Easy peasy.

We typically serve our curry over rice or quinoa. Though I usually eat mine without the added starches. It is perfectly hearty while being perfectly healthy too.

I have even added spinach to the finished dish and let it wilt down to add some extra veggie power.

This recipe was first introduced to me by Sarah @ SarahKoontz.com, the other founding lady of this blog. She loves to be in the kitchen as much as I do, but her specialty is making a meal one time. I think she literally made this dish on a whim, served it to me, and forgot about it. Ha!

I, however, could never forget about this recipe and I know you will feel the same way too!

  1. I didn’t use to be that keen on curry, Sammi, but I am enjoying it more and more. This definitely looks like a great dish for anyone who hasn’t had curry before as it’s so healthy, colourful and flavourful. Scheduled to pin, tweeted and featuring at this week’s Hearth and Soul Link Party. Thank you so much for sharing it with the link party and hope to ‘see’ you there!

    1. I certainly hope you will give this recipe a try, April. I think you are right, it may be a great “intro” to curry flavors. πŸ˜‰ Thank you for featuring it this week! I am headed over right now! πŸ™‚

  2. Sammi. True story. I got this email in my inbox and my mouth started watering so I headed over to tell you I can’t wait to try it! I guess I already have 😘 Thank you for being my go to recipe box and reminding me of all the jewels I would have otherwise forgotten.

    1. And that is why I love you! lol You give me plenty of recipe ideas because of your amazing creativity and free spirit…but also forget all of them because of it. πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi Alison! Thank you for the kind words, yes it is such an easy dish yet doesn’t taste that way. πŸ˜‰ I use curry powder at our local co-op from the bulk bins, but I have been cooking quite a bit at my mom’s house and used her Archer Farms (Target) curry powder and it has great flavor too. Happy Eating!
