- Serve immediately with the garlic roasted potatoes.
Kevin's tips: Use pork chops in this recipe instead of the chicken for a different dish. When frying the vegetables stir constantly so as to ensure they soak up all the curried flavours from the sediment on the pan. This dish can be assembled in advance, refrigerated and baked when required, (Just ensure that you allow the sauce and the chicken to cool down separately before mixing them together to prevent contamination.)
