Curry Chicken Poppers

One of our close friends, R, is an amazing chef. When he moved to Sydney, he lived with us for a couple of weeks before he settled in. Those weeks took us on joyous rides to the land of gluttony. Every evening after we came back from work, R and I would cook a storm…

Chicken 65 – easy version
