skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into strips
curry powder, or to taste
All you need to make this recipe PERFECT is a can of chicken broth! By adding the broth and a little extra onion, this recipe came out almost identical to my friends curried chicken and she's from Jamaica!! Also, curry powders vary, so only add as much powder as tastes good to you! This was soooo good, I had no leftovers!
What a mess! 1/3 cup of curry! This is too much and not enough in the way of other ingredients!
This recipe provides a great starting point for a delicious, easy curry. First I thinly sliced 3 large chicken breast halves and browned them in olive oil. While they were cooking I started the onion (in 3T. olive oil) in a separate skillet. To the onion I added sliced, fresh mushrooms and some frozen peas. When the veggies were heated I added 3 T. curry, some hot pepper flakes, 2 C. chicken broth and 1/2 C. unsweetened coconut milk. Finally, I stirred in the cooked chicken strips and let the whole thing cook for an additional 15 min. to reduce the broth. Served this over Texmati rice to my family of 4 and everyone really loved it! The 3 T. of curry powder seemed like plenty to us, but that's personal perference. This recipe would get 5 stars except that it had to be tweaked quite a bit.
I agree this recipe isn't perfect because it produces very little sauce if any. I read the reviews while making it, and followed them. Simply add a cup or so of chicken broth, and other ingredients to taste (onions, green peppers, extra curry powder) and it makes for an outstanding curry recipe, you won't be dissatisfied.
Something has got to missing from this recipe. Way too much curry and no sauce. I added a cup of water and a can of condensed cream of chicken soup. Helped save the dinner
Good recipe, but I took another's idea and added chicken broth, otherwise, it would not have any sauce to it. Also, I added green pepper. Next time, I would add onions and green peppers toward the end so they would keep some firmness to them.
I tried this last night with the following changes based on other reviews. I added 1 can chicken broth. I also seasoned my chicken with salt, pepper, garlic salt, and curry powder and let it marinate in the fridge for about 3 hours. After that, I followed the recipe and my family loved this dish.
Excellent dish for a first time curry cooker. It was simple and tasty, even better with a lot of onion and a pinch of cumin! Great base for a stew! Yum!!
