Quick, Easy & Healthy Recipe: Chicken and Eggplant Panang Curry

Updated on March 30, 2015
3.7 stars from 6 ratings of Chicken and Eggplant Panang Curry

This is one of my husband's absolute favorite meals that I make - he says it's the perfect combination of warm cozy comfort food, but while still being healthy and full of veggies! I love it too, and I especially love how easy it is to make - perfect after a long day at work. I hope you enjoy it too!

(I use a rice cooker to steam the white rice while I'm preparing the curry so that everything is ready at the same time - the rice can always stay in the cooker to keep warm for a few minutes if it's ready a little quicker than the curry.)
