Chicken Curry + IPA == Happiness

This curry is not exactly Indian and its not really Thai, maybe that makes it British. No matter, it’s still delicious and super simple.

I use the pressure cooker here, it makes quick work of the thighs and turns them into tender delicious morsels. You could do this stove top, you’d just need to have more liquid and cook it longer.

If you wanted to, you could up the ante by making your own curry paste and using that, I’m sure it would be great, or you could spend that time enjoying another IPA.
