Recipe #3: Angie’s Maple Curry Chicken | The Brisson Family Cookbook

August-7This recipe came to us because we were excitedly telling our friends about how we are working on making a family cookbook. “Well,” said my friend, “You need to come over and try Angie’s maple curry chicken. It’s the best, and it will definitely make it into your book.”

Yes, yes it has made it in. It’s actually one of our favorites around here. Not only is it delicious, but it is also super easy! Now that regular people have easier access to international food, making this is a cinch. Just look for a jar of red curry paste.

And of course, it is kid friendly 🙂
