Curry-Spiced Chicken Thighs with Sugar Snap Peas and Fingerling Potatoes

Curry-Spiced Chicken

I always love it when the Blue Apron box arrives at my doorstep!  I tear open the box like a kid at Christmas to see what I’ll find.  This occasion was no different.  Here was what I made last night.  Thank you Blue Apron!  This is a great new addition to my recipe collection.

Curry-Spiced Chicken Thighs with Sugar Snap Peas & Fingerling Potatoes

Makes: 2-3 Servings

Cooking Time: 35 to 45 minutes
