Chicken Curry

Well this isn't the most appealing dish I've ever made but it certainly is one of the more delicious ones!!!  My son shared this recipe using chick peas as the protein source.  I didn't think Tim would buy into the chick peas being the "meat" in this dish, so I substituted chicken.

This recipe is so versatile, you could substitute any protein or veggies.  I may try carrots next time just to brighten up the color.   If you're a curry fan, give this one a try.  It's easy and oh so yummy!!

 Chicken Curry
Recipe Adapted from The Pioneer Woman
  • 2 cups Basmati Rice
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 whole Large Onion, Diced Fine
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Curry Powder, Any Variety
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 cup Chicken Stock
  • 2 cups cooked diced chicken breast or thigh
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 can (13.5 Ounce) Coconut Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey, More To Taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha Or Hot Sauce (more To Taste)
Cook the basmati rice according to the package instructions.  (I use a rice cooker, one kitchen appliance I wouldn't be without!)

Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes, until the onions are soft and starting to turn golden. Sprinkle in the curry powder and garlic and stir, cooking for another minute or so. Pour in the vegetable stock and stir to scrape up all the brown bits in the pan. Add the coconut milk, honey and a squirt of sriracha. Bring to a boil, add the chicken and peas, reduce the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more salt, honey, or Sriracha (or lime juice, if using.)

Serve the curry over the rice.


  1. Boy this sounds good! Curry is a pretty new flavor to me but I must say I've been enjoying it:@)

  2. Photographing food is so hard, especially in the winter. I'm sure this curry tastes wonderful!

  3. Photographing a curry dish is hard as the colors can get muted but there was no muting of the flavors in your dish, I'm sure.

  4. This sounds delicious, Julie! I don't make many curry dishes but I do enjoy the flavor very much. I don't think my husband would go for the chickpeas either ;)
