Chicken Curry over Basmati Rice

I desperately need to go to the store, I have found that if I don't have exactly what I need or at least a recipe/plan for dinner I am wholly uninspired. I still have CSA veggies to get through and I found I had one more curry packet left over in the pantry and I thought, ah ha! I can toss all sorts of veggies in a curry! So I started with the rice, then I cut up a leek, and an onion and sauteed that with the chicken breast cut into mini-pieces about the size of chickpeas, which I also added later. I also included red new potatoes and carrots. I thought about adding some summer squash but when I asked my husband if I should - I am not a fan of squashes it is one of the only veggies I am not too keen on- he said nah! So I didn't add it. Now when the directions on the package ask for 6 cups of water I add 4 cups of broth instead, I like my curry a little thicker but this is a very flavorful curry spice mixture but it isn't spicy -my husband adds saracha sauce for his heat- but Molly likes it (even though she didn't eat this because it was a day of sickness for her poor baby)!
Chicken Curry:
1 small leek, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 chicken breast, chopped
3-5 good sized new potatoes, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1/2 can of chickpeas
4 cups chicken broth
1 packet (4 squares) of Golden Curry Spice Mix

**Feel free to add any and all veggies you like to this curry, I am sure it will work well. This is a great clean out the fridge/pantry dinner.
