Great over basmati rice for a complete meal (also great with naan or cauliflower rice to keep the carbs low or Whole30 compliant).

I use skinless chicken thighs (I prefer on the bone for more flavor) but you can use your favorite part of the chicken. If you want to leave the potatoes out that would also be totally fine. To make chicken curry in a hurry, this can easily be adapted for the Instant Pot or pressure cooker using slightly less water and the Poultry button, then do a quick release, add the potatoes and cook 5 more minutes.
