A good curry and a nice balance of savory and sweet. This could easily be made with only veggies if you want a meatless dish...it's hearty. I like my curries saucier so I used a full can of coconut milk instead of. just the one-cup called for here. I would also season the chicken with slightly more salt and pepper next time.
