Chicken Curry

When you are in the mood for something a little different Chicken Curry may be just the right dish for you.

If you have had extra spicy curry in the past and are leery about using it, consider the sweet version which imparts the full spice flavor without a lot of heat.

We used the sweet curry the first night and when we made leftovers we added a teaspoon of the spicy since we enjoy a little heat in our dishes. If you have any doubts, start with the sweet and you can't go wrong. So, what are we waiting for? Let's Get Cooking!

Ingredients and Instructions:

Chop into medium sized bit size pieces:
2-3 Carrots
2 Celery Stalks
