Quick Curry Chicken and Vegetables

So I have been craving yellow curry for soooo long. I never got to looking for a recipe or buying the necessary ingredients to make it from scratch and so when I found this lovely bottle of yellow curry sauce at Trader Joe's, I knew I had to buy it. It made making curry so easy and it was equally as delicious. I highly recommend this meal for an easy fix.

Serves 4

1 lb. of chicken breasts, cut into 1.5 inch pieces
olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, and coriander to taste (around 1/2 tsp each)
6 cremini mushrooms, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1 small yellow onion, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1 bottle of Trader Joe's Yellow Curry Sauce
3 potatoes, cleaned and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 14oz can of french style sliced green beans
1 small red bell pepper, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 small broccoli, chopped into 1 inch pieces
3 cups cooked rice
1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped finely

1. Take the chicken pieces and coat the chicken, onions, and mushrooms in oil, salt, pepper, cumin, and coriander. Make sure each piece is evenly coated. Heat a large deep frying pan to medium and add the chicken mixture.
2. Let the chicken brown a little on each side. While chicken is browning, place the chopped potatoes in a microwave safe bowl and microwave them on high for about 5 minutes until a fork can easily enter the potato. Once potatoes are ready, set aside.
3. Once chicken seems 75 % cooked, pour the yellow curry sauce into the pan. Fully coat all of the chicken mixture in the sauce. Then add the remaining vegetables, the broccoli, red bell pepper, potatoes and green beans. Bring the sauce to a boil, then cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
4. Once everything seems all cooked, evenly distribute chicken mixture and rice on 4 plates. Top with some freshly cut cilantro and enjoy!
