Chicken in Yellow Curry Sauce Recipe


This chicken recipe is pretty easy to make as most of the sauces can be easily brought in the market. It is also very healthy as it has large portions of baby corns. It tastes great and children just love this chicken. It can be served as main course or as a snack what ever is your liking. It is made in just 2 Tbsp of olive oil so it doesn't have much fat in it. Since it is for 4 person so that comes to about half a Tbsp of oil per person which is very less for any kind of main dish in the dinner or lunch
