Thai Chicken Curry

This is an easy Thai Chicken Curry dish that is spicy, savory and sweet.  It really hits all the senses.   The coconut milk along with the sweet potatoes offset the spice of the curry and the chilis. This is one of my client’s favorite dishes and is requested over and over again.  Nutritious and delicious!!!
