Chicken curry has to be one of the easiest sauces to prepare. It's quickly becoming my go-to sauce to eat with rice. It has a creamy-curry-spicy flavor and it's even better paired with naan bread.

 3 lbs red potato, quartered
 3 tbsp olive oil
 5 tbsp curry powder, divided
 4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 3 inch (7.5 cm) cubes
 1 onion, finely chopped
 10 oz frozen pea
 2 red bell peppers, chopped
 1 lb green bean, end trimmed
 4 carrots, chopped
 1 jalepeno, chopped
 1 tbsp black pepper
 1 tbsp salt
 jasmine rice, cooked, for serving
 fresh parsley, chopped, for serving

In a bowl, add the potatoes, and fill the bowl with water until the potatoes are covered. Microwave on the potato setting for 10 Minutes. The potatoes are done when you can pierce through them with a fork. Leave in water, and set aside until ready to use.


In a large pot over medium heat, add the olive oil and 3 tablespoons of curry powder, and mix thoroughly.


Add the cubed chicken and the onions to the pot, and mix thoroughly until chicken is cooked through, about 5 Minutes.


Add the peas, red bell peppers, green beans, carrots, and jalapeƱo pepper, and mix thoroughly.


Add the reserved potatoes, along with 6 cups (1 L) of the water the potatoes were cooked in to the pot, and mix thoroughly.


Add the salt, pepper, and the rest of the curry powder, and mix thoroughly.


Bring the curry to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer the curry for 1 hour on low heat. Remove from heat.


Serve with jasmine rice garnished with parsley.
