Curry chicken and rice (One pot)

My latest obsession: Curry chicken rice, all in one pot.
Nothing easy than a one pot dish. Fewer bowls to wash! That brings about the obsession.
Because eating is nicer than washing dishes 

There is rice, chicken, carrots and green beans spiced with curry, ginger and garlic. It is a happy meal.
Feel free to add any vegetable of choice, add less curry or more as you want, gather patience for 25 minutes and get a spoon. If that is even necessary.
