Easy Chicken Curry

I love, love, love this curry. I make this alot and it will be one of those go to recipes that I will make for a pot luck party, or for company. Even if you think you don't like curry, trust me you'll like this one and so will your kids.

This is a dish my Mum started making when I was still in high school, I'm pretty sure she found the recipe in a magazine and it quickly became a family favourite. It's such a lovely mild flavour and the sweetness from the mango chutney is what makes this such a hit with everyone. Plus the fact that it's a one pot dish is fantastic, gotta love that!
