Clean Eating Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry

The Kitchen Shed - Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry

The Kitchen Shed - Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry

The Kitchen Shed - Chicken and Sweet Potato CurryThis is my ideal curry. I could eat it every day. Until forever. I have adapted it from a recipe by Lorraine Pascal called ‘Sri Lankan Curry’ which I tried last summer. It needed a little ‘clean’ up but even then, Clean Eating to me is not just about eating something that’s just made from natural ingredients. Clean Eating is about getting as many healthy vitamins, minerals and goodness into my body as possible.

I’ve added onion, sweet potato, kale and mushrooms to this dish to give it an extra bit of loving from the vegetable department, but you could use any vegetables you like. A handful of raisins would probably work well in it too.

This Clean Eating Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry is minimal work and seems to just cook itself. Its perfect alongside some wholegrain rice or homemade Clean Eating Indian Chapattis. Did I mention it’s the best curry ever?

    Hi! This looks great, before I cook does the chicken need to be pre cooked or can it go in raw?

      Its the same kind as the tinned coconut milk, not the Alpro one. I use the creamed coconut sachets to make up the milk instead of a tin these days.

    Just made this but it’s very watery. I am trying to thicken it up before we can eat! I would suggest adding 100ml and see how that goes. Can always add, but can’t take it back out.
