can I reuse curry sauce for another curry?

My boyfriend asked me a prawn curry for dinner tomorrow. I have some curry sauce defrosting in the fridge from a previous chicken curry. It's just the sauce with no meat. I wouldn't want to throw it away as there is quite a bit.
Can I reuse it with prawns for a new curry or I'll have to start again from scratch?
I am wondering if there might be a chicken taste in that sauce that might not go well with the prawns and ruin everything. Also will it defrost well?

    it'll be fine. hit it with a stick blender if the consistency is in doubt.

      really, it should be fine. defrost it and taste it. chicken is such a mild meat i don't see an issue with flavor.
