Well not much to say about this little number. This is a regular dish that I make at my house. I usually try to make some homemade naan when I make this dish.....but this time all I had was pita!! Throwing in the sweet potatoes was just an idea I had that worked well!!

Then I just make some white rice and a veggie and serve the curry chicken over the rice. Good stuff and so is homemade naan!!
