Chicken Curry Bowl

I saw this post and realized that I had everything on hand to make it for dinner. It was pretty simple to put together, and was really tasty. I didn't bother flipping each piece of chicken individually, I just stirred the chunks around every once in a while until they were browned all over. The end result was good - but I think I accidentally over-salted it. I served it over some leftover Jasmine rice. I also threw a few chives on top to try to add a bit more color. It was nice to have a mild onion-y flavor with the chicken.
