One Pot Indian Chicken and Rice
I love one-pot meals. Less fuss = less clean up and I am all for that! The classic curry flavours in this dish will get your taste buds tingling on a cold winters night with plenty left over for lunch the next day. This dish is definitely going to be a regular on our weeknight meals repertoire.
