Chicken Curry In A Hurry

May 11, 2010 at 7:42 am (Uncategorized)

Last night I tried a new recipe for dinner and it was AWESOME!  As a matter of fact it got a 100% approval rate from the family!  This is rare, usually there is at least one dissenter to whatever I cook. 

Here is the recipe:

We did all decide that we would like the sauce part to be doubled next time.  I also put in more curry powder than the recipe calls for since my kids are use to eating curry and we like it spicy!  So here is "my" recipe as opposed to the one on the website.

Chicken Curry In A Hurry

  • 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 5 tablespoons curry powder
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes (drained)
  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped


  1. Heat the oil in  large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook, stirring for 7 minutes.  Sprinkle with the curry powder and cook for 1 more minute.
  2. Add the yogurt and cream.  Simmer for 3 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper and add tomatoes.
  3. Slice or shredded the chicken.  Discard the bones and skin. Add the chicken to the sauce mixture and cook 4 more minutes to heat chicken through. 
  4. Serve over Basmati rice and top with cilantro.

Next time I hope to make this with the Rice Pilav that my mil use to make.
Happy Homeschooling,
