a little curry. {gluten-free & dairy-free}

13 January 2012

This week we are pup sitting at Fresh Air Dogs. It is a busy week filled with tons of dog snuggling.

Last night I made a roasted chicken rubbed down with Patak's mild curry paste. It was so juicy & flavorful. So today, I saved the extra chicken & made a broth with the bones. Then I made a little stew that was cozy & filling. This can easily be vegetarian by omitting the chicken or you can use leftovers like I did. Instead of cooking the chicken with the stew, like in this recipe, I just stirred in the leftover chicken at the end.

3 potatoes, diced
