Kabocha Squash Chicken Curry {#12WksWinterSquash}

Happy Monday and welcome to week 7 of 12 Weeks of Winter Squash the great even hosted by Heather and Joanne.  Have you blogged about winter squash?  Feel free to add your linky below :) Can you believe that we are now in week 7?! Yes,  Christmas is less than ten days away and let me just say that I am nowhere closer to being ready than I was last week.  For once however we did venture out yesterday, got a tree, put it up and decorated.  This is the earliest we have ever had a tree up and I actually {along with the rest of the family} love it.  And yes, just in case you are wondering, temperatures have returned to normal here in Portland as we welcome the drizzle back....How about you?  Are you getting into the spirit of the holidays?

So yes, I have promised you delicious Kabocha Squash Chicken Curry.  Sweet squash, with chicken, in a mild curry...

This is a super quick and easy meal; perfect for a weekday...
