Hot Chook Curry

Sometimes I call my mum, tell her the contents of my fridge and wait quietly while she comes up with something I should cook for dinner.

That’s what happened this week. Can I just say that the hot chooks from Costco are almost certainly fed a sold diet of steroids. The chook we got on Sunday was approximately the size of a swan, so obviously we had leftovers.

I called my mum and she sent me this.

When I was thinking of writing this blog I thought, this will be great, this is clearly one of those thirty year old recipes that she’s had since she was two years old (winkey-face), but then I noticed the Smiggle website at the bottom of the page, and she told me her friend gave it to her. Somebody buy the lady a plastic sleeve to keep her recipes in.

Anyway, it’s yum, I tweaked it a little bit, but Indi loved it. Even yelled ‘DELICIOUS’ and I yelled ‘HALLELUJAH’. (I think the issue we’ve had until now is that the food hasn’t been flavoursome enough – the kid loves curry!)

So here it is, and do you know what was even better, I already had all of the ingredients, and you probably will too.
