A1 Curry Chicken (Express Recipe)

“Impress your guests with this quick and easy curry chicken and egg goodies during your open house or friends’ visit!”

Curry chicken is a common spicy Indian cuisine across Asia countries. Asian loves spicy food, and Singaporean is always so fascinated by this fabulous curry dish. We have our own version of curry chicken, whereby its gravy is more ‘watery’. Indeed, we like to drench the bread, especially french loaf, into curry sauce, eating the loaf with curry dipping as a meal just by its own.

Well, there isn’t any ‘must‘ to load your curry dish with sauce. I did cook the dry curry (chicken) dishes, too! It’s all up to you! More
