My little food critic and stylist in action. This easy chicken curry is our go to weeknight meal and a great way to introduce spices to your family.

In this recipe they add a delicious depth of flavour and numerous health benefits without being overpowering.

This is a winner even with fussy eaters. I stir through chopped baby spinach leaves but you can always leave this out.
