What's for Dinner- Boneless Curry Chicken with Potatoes & Channa

What's more trini than curried chicken? Growing up this dish was a regular food, nothing "exotic" about it to me. So let's take that fear or curry being weird or foreign away and replace it with just another meal on a Tuesday afternoon.
A little back story first. What exactly is curry? Curry is essentially a spice blend usually with turmeric, cumin, coriander and red pepper found primarily in Indian and South Asian cuisines. The varying heat levels come from preparation of "currys" from various regions, mixing the curry powders with different peppers and/or chillies to complete the dish served as a side with rice or breads. Trinidadian style curry is different from the Indian style, Trini curry is made with a premade curry powder and the sauce is generally thinner. Curry is an integral part of the multi-ethnic cuisine of Trinidad, and i hope you'll give it a try in your house!

Turn off heat and serve with rice of roti skins.
