Curried Chicken & Veggies in under 30 Minutes

This dish is delicious.  I am eating it as I am typing this.  Make no mistake.  This post will take longer than expected for me to type.  It is hard to tear myself away from this dish.  It is wonderful!  Even better, it is simple to make.  Believe me after working all day I don’t want to make a complicated dinner.  I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but the meals I prepare are simple.  I like simple.  Life is hard enough, let’s keep cooking fabulous meals simple!

2 chicken breasts, chopped into bite size pieces

3 carrots, sliced

1 medium onion, sliced

2 medium red potatoes, chopped into bite size pieces

fresh thyme

fresh oregano

fresh Thai basil

When your potatoes and carrots are cooked dissolve the arrow root in a little water and pour into pan to thicken the remaining stock, stir.

Cook it for a couple more minutes allowing it to thicken into a sauce.

Serve warm!  You have a complete meal in there.  Well, after we paired ours with a Milk Stout, we had a complete meal. Meat, Veggies, Starch, Dairy.  I have to brag a little bit, all the veggies except the carrots were fresh from the garden.  All the herbs were fresh from the garden.
