Peanut Butter Curry

I wanted to share a curry with you that was: 
easy to make
made from basic condiments (not a million different kinds) 
accessible/mild (perfect for families with young children) whilst also introducing a common allergen, which is important! If you are offering to young children (< 2 year old), shred the chicken instead of using chunks
