Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Cranberry Curry

Updated on October 24, 2014

What do you have in your fridge?

This recipe is a great way to use up some of the last few bits of fresh vegetables you have in your refrigerator. You can substitute pork for chicken or omit the meat completely. If you make it with less broth, you can eat the vegetables on their own, without rice or a starch underneath. Experiment with this and make it yours.
