Crazy for Curry

My family loves curry. We eat Japanese Curry, Thai Curry, and Indian Curry. On rice, it's a hit with my kids, and I never get a fight from them about finishing their dinner. I really prefer to make it from scratch, but there are so many mixes and pastes out there that help cut down the prep time. And they are fabulous! Last night I made a very quick Indian curry dish using a bottled curry sauce from Whole Foods. I've forgotten the brand, but I sauted about a pound of diced chicken in 2 T of olive oil. Then I added the curry sauce. I let it simmer for about 20 minutes, and before serving mixed in 1/4 c of heavy cream. In the past I've added a can of kidney beans to the sauce as well. Soooo heavenly.
