Coconut Curry with Chicken Meatballs


Hello everyone, my latest dinner recipe is for Coconut Curry with Chicken Meatballs. I have had this sitting as draft with the just the photographs and no recipe for a couple of weeks now. I’ve finally got round to typing it up and sharing it with you all.

If you can’t find minced chicken you can substitute it for turkey mince which can be easier to find in the supermarket. The sauce has quite a few ingredients but don’t let it put you off. Most of the ingredients you may already have in your store cupboard.
