Chicken Curry Skillet Recipe

This is a simple chicken curry skillet dish that will wow your taste buds. The blend of curry, chicken, vegetables, and potatoes will leave you wanting seconds.

I feel so grateful that my late father taught me how to cook at a young age. He taught me a great lesson: have fun, and don't get caught up in exact measurements.

This recipe came to be because of my love of curry, chicken, vegetables, and potatoes. I played with different spices and ingredients until I came up with a skillet dish that I knew my family would love. I hope you enjoy it too.
