This Curry and Cauliflower Chicken is a perfect comfort food that I crave so much, especially when its cold outside. This clean eating gluten free recipe is now on a regular menu rotation in our house. Its quick, its easy, its comforting, its filling, its guilt free. Between holiday parties and birthday celebrations there has to be something that we can enjoy, that is good and healthy at the same time. Growing up in Ukraine, I didn’t know much about spices. Oh how much I was missing out! We mostly used salt and pepper, which can do miracles as well, since not much of other spices were available. I discover new flavors and spices to this day. First time I’ve tried Curry dish in Thai restaurant, and was pleasantly surprised, I loved it! When I came across this recipe, I knew its a must try. My whole family absolutely loved it! I tried serving Curry Chicken with quinoa, and brown rice, my kids prefer brown rice. Hope you enjoy.
