When I want dinner in a hurry, there's nothing like a quick, one-pot dish. Curried Chicken and Potato Stew cooks up in just 25 minutes and there are few dishes to wash afterwards. Potatoes and chicken marry well with the sophisticated flavors of coconut milk, fresh ginger, garlic and cilantro -- bright seasonings inspired by the cuisines of Southeast Asia. If you think of potatoes as a starch, think again. Potatoes are really a vegetable. They're an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of potassium. A medium potato has just 110 calories and no fat.
