Panang Chicken Curry

Gluten Free, PoultryRespond to this post »

A mere 10 years we would never have considered a chicken curry for dinner.
It was something we enjoyed at a Indian restaurant only.
Nowadays no ethnic cuisine is out of reach.
You can buy coconut milk at any grocery store.
Items we previously thought were really exotic like ginger or lemongrass are now very mainstream.
Aren’t we lucky?
The thought of just American food seems well just unAmerican!
