A delicious and easy mild curry recipe for kids made with chicken and sweet potato.
Hello! It’s Ciara here again from My Fussy Eater. I’m delighted to be back on Super Healthy Kids sharing another quick and easy recipe that the whole family can enjoy. This month I’ve focused on dinnertime and the classic chicken curry!
I’ve always been a big fan of curries but rather than give up one of my favourite meals, I knew I had to adapt my recipes to make them a little more kid-friendly! My recipe for this Chicken & Sweet Potato Curry is still packed full of flavour but mildly spiced at the same time, making it suitable for the whole family.
This recipe really is so easy to make and has just a handful of simple everyday ingredients. It requires minimal prep beyond a bit of chopping and pretty much takes care of itself on the stove. That’s my kind of cooking!
The curry is made with coconut milk, making it super creamy but also completely dairy free too. The sweet potatoes provide not only a nutritional boost of fibre and Vitamins A and C.
I obviously used chicken in this recipe, but if you want to make this meal vegetarian, or just change up the protein source, feel free to substitute it with canned chickpeas. I often do this and the curry is just as delicious! But remember that the chickpeas are already cooked so you only need to add them in for the last 5 minutes.
If you really want to make this dish a nutritional powerhouse, then add a bag of fresh spinach during the last few minutes of cooking. It will add a tonne of extra flavour, not to mention protein, iron and lots of other vitamins and minerals.
I like to serve this curry with some chopped fresh coriander on top, a mix of white and brown rice and a few poppadoms too! Naan breads are also super delicious on the side!
