classic chicken curry

If you don't know the flavor of curry, you must give it a try. This is an easy one, too. It's not hard to find a recipe online, but I got this particular recipe from my friend, Britney. The recipe I'm posting includes my slight modifications.


1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2-3 pieces)
2 Tbsp. curry powder (look among the spices)
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
1 1/2 c. (14 oz. can) low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 c. heavy cream
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Cooked white rice
1/2 c. fresh basil leaves, torn (optional)
1/4 c. (1 oz.) almonds, roughly chopped (optional)

Rinse the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels. Cut it into 1-inch pieces and place in a bowl. Sprinkle it with the curry and cinnamon, toss, and set aside. Heat 1 Tbsp. of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and zucchini and cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Heat the remaining oil in the skillet. Add the chicken and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Add the broth, cream, salt, and pepper. Bring to a gentle simmer. Return the onion and zucchini to the skillet and heat until the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. For a little stronger curry flavor, this is a good time to sprinkle some more of the curry powder into the liquid mixture. (I do.)

Divide the rice among individual bowls, top with the curry, and sprinkle with the basil and almonds.

Tip: You can vary the ingredients depending on what you have on hand. Consider substituting coconut milk for the cream, eggplant for the zucchini, cilantro for the basil, or cashews for the almonds.

Yield: Makes 4 servings

Thanks Becky! I will try this one. I make a curry dish using rice, peas, raisins, peanuts and scallions and it's always a huge hit.

Tried this recipe tonight and it was pretty good! Kids had trouble with the veggies (as expected) but I loved the extra touch of basil and almonds :)

My girlfriends have gone nuts for this recipe. They all think I am the most amazing chef. I puree the onions, it's the only way to get my kids to eat it. Thanks SO VERY much for this recipe.

Classic method to cook chicken curry is good for health. But nowadays so many ready made masalas are added and they are not at all good for health. Personally I like this post though I'm not a foodie. Keep sharing more good blogs. DUI Lawyer Fairfax County
