Easy Coconut Curry Chicken

Easy Coconut Curry Chicken

I have never been a fan of curry until I started making my own curry powder. What a difference! There is just so much more flavor when you toast your own whole spices and grind them yourself in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle.

The spices in curry powder are anti-inflammatory and help balance your blood sugar! Here is the simplest Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe you can make using your own curry powder!

By the way, that’s a flatbread in the photo made from Cassava flour that we’ll be making in the upcoming Gluten-free Baking Workshop!
