This is a GREAT way to use leftover meat! You can adjust the heat to your taste. Serve with steamed browned rice for a delicious and healthy meal. Leave out the meat for a vegetarian option.

  • 4
    Stir in the chicken stock and tomatoes and then simmer for two minutes.

    Season with Gourmet Salt Blends Roasted Garlic and Peppercorn salt. Taste and add more salt and/or curry if desired. If you prefer a smoother sauce, use an immersion blender at this point.

    Serve over rice.
