Delicious Creamy Coconut Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry which can be cooked stovetop or in an Instant Pot
Today was one of those busy days, rushing around like crazy and it gets to dinner time and nothing is prepared.
That's where the instant pot comes to the rescue. Luckily I had some chicken thighs in the fridge, so combined a few ingredients and a delicious meal was ready in less than 30 mins.
If you haven't heard of an Instant Pot you are seriously missing out. It is the best kitchen gadget I have purchased. I would even put it above my actifry and that's saying something. I love this thing so much, that I almost use it EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
It seriously tops every kitchen appliance I have ever bought.
It is basically a 7in1 cooker, and it slow cooks, pressure cooks, saute's, has settings for soup, chilli, rice, porridge and even makes yoghurt (I haven't tried that yet).

This Coconut Chicken and Sweet Potato curry was so easy to make - just browned some onion, garlic and ginger using the saute mode, added in some cooked sweet potato, spices, then the chicken and coconut milk and a little while later dinner was ready.
The sweet potato does something magical in this dish, ads a subtle sweetness while thickening the sauce. It tastes so good. In fact, I think it might be my new favourite curry recipe. The curry sauce was amazing, so much so I admit to ladling up that sauce with a spoon. Delicious!!
Great served with some oven roasted zucchini for some extra speed food and steamed rice. Although if you are paleo, whole30 or just want to up the speed, even more, this would be great served with my Roasted Cauliflower Rice
The meat in this Coconut Chicken and Sweet Potato curry is so tender. I recommend using thighs over chicken breasts, but if you are not keen on dark meat, a chicken breast will work fine too, you just may need to adjust the timing so that the chicken isn't overcooked.
How can I add a ⅓ Veg to this Coconut Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry?
If not serving with Roasted Cauliflower Rice, you could add some vegetables and reduce your portion of rice. Roasted zucchini pairs really well with this curry, as does roasted cauliflower. Another option is to replace the sweet potato for butternut squash.
