Curry Chicken on Cauliflower Rice

Recipes

I was craving some curry this weekend, and this recipe delivered. Very filling and a nice hint of spice, what I did notice was that it was far more tasty as leftovers. Might have to make this one in bulk next time. I will also go a bit heavier on the spices. Regardless it was a fairly easy recipe to make and is very yummy.
