Monday Meals With Me: Creamy Chicken Curry

I am not going to lie, this chicken curry dish is delicious, it’s also got a boatload of sour cream in it!  

Which is exactly how my mom made it for us growing up, and how I make it for my kids (well, I actually only make it for Elsie, it’s one of her favorites, Ben refuses to eat it).

But if you wanted to make it less fattening, you could swap out the sour cream for light coconut milk, in fact the next time I make it I am going to try it that way and see if Elsie likes it.

Growing up mom just used powdered ginger, which is just fine, but I always love to get fresh ginger it really ups the flavor. And as always you can adjust the spice level with the type of curry you use, we like it hot!  Don’t forget to make some rice to go with… And enjoy one of my childhood favorites!
