“A mild and creamy chicken curry that kids will like too. The recipe was originally posted on an Austrian cooking site by my friend and fellow chef, Martha Zech. With her permission I am sharing it with the Zaar family. The original title of the dish is "Haehnchen - Geschnetzeltes mit Brokkoli und Karotten". Serve over rice or oriental noodles for a great weeknight dinner.”
