Chicken & Mushroom Curry – Quick & Easy to Make

Chicken and Mushroom Curry is a quick and easy dish to make.  It is a favourite of my daughters’ and made in one pan – so less washing up!  It’s delicious served with rice and/or poppadoms and mango chutney.  I use brown rice because I prefer it, but it can be served with long grain rice or even pasta.

This recipe for Chicken & Mushroom Curry serves two, so is simple to adapt for a single person or a family.  As both my daughters are students, I often make the curry in bulk and freeze it in individual portions for them to reheat at university. Having said that, they often use this recipe (sometimes adapting it to use the ingredients they have) and make chicken curry themselves.
