Coconut Chicken,Lentil and Sweet Potato Curry

Autumn or Fall Season is such a spectacular time of the year especially in a forest. Burnt orange, mulberry red and golden yellow leaves blaze brightly until they fall for winter. Hauntingly beautiful scenes. Have the leaves begun to change where you live?

In keeping with the splendidly colorful foliage upon us. I made this cozy creamy coconut chicken curry with lots of orange sweet potato and carrots. Lentils are added for extra fiber and macro-nutrients. Like all curries the flavor intensifies overnight so any leftovers will be phenomenal.
