Ughhh, is everyone feeling off today because of Daylight Savings? Why does that exist? I had such a hard time waking up this morning and now I feel a bit disoriented. At least the sun won’t set until after dinner, which is always a good thing for a food blogger like me. Natural light > artificial light when it comes to food photography.

Enough complaining, Jean. It’s time to share a fan-freakin-tastic recipe: coconut chicken curry! There was a time when I wouldn’t even want to attempt Indian cooking because it just seemed complicated and difficult in my head. Maybe it was all the spices they use, but I was just a tad intimidated. It wasn’t until recently that I started regularly cooking curry at home, and I have become obsessed.

Maybe it’s just me, but there’s a huge sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when I’m able to recreate my favorite dish from a restaurant at home. And with a slow cooker or Instant Pot, it’s EXTRA easy, and this coconut chicken curry came together with minimal effort.

If you are on a sugar detox, feel free to just eat the curry alone or eat it with cauliflower rice. I love regular ol’ white rice and I feel really great on it so I will always choose that. Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy this coconut chicken curry as much as I did! I know I’ll be making curry at home way more often now that I know how easy it is.
