Chicken Curry…

April 30, 2012

… in a hurry is the name of this recipe. And besides the fact that it’s really fast to make, it’s something that I highly recommend that you go make right now.

This recipe was recommended to me by my in-laws. They basically said, “Make this and then blog about it.” So, here I am. It’s so tasty, and so easy. They were so right to recommend this. I have a feeling this Chicken Curry will be making a rotation through our weekly meals starting now.

And you know what would go great with this Chicken Curry? This Baked Brown Rice. Mmm… so good! A perfect pairing!

Chicken Curry

recipe from Food.com


  • 2 T flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 & 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 T oil
  • 1 T curry powder
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1 & 1/2 T tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt


  1. Mix together flour, salt, and cayenne pepper in a large bag. Add chicken in small batches, shaking off the excess flour.
  2. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add chicken and cook until lightly brown. Add curry powder and toss to coat.
  4. Set the chicken aside and add onion and garlic to pan. Add a little more oil if you need too. Cook for two minutes and then add chicken brother, raisins and tomato paste.
  5. Add chicken back to pan with the other ingredients and simmer for 8 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked and sauced has thickened.
  6. Garnish with cilantro and a dollop of yogurt.
  7. Enjoy!

  1. We usually end up tripling the batch! Also, we don’t bother using the flour mixture- we just put the cut up chicken pieces in the frying pan and sprinkle the seasonings over as the chicken is frying. I find the tomato paste makes the sauce thick enough, but if you like more of a gravy consistency, use the flour.

    • Ooh, I’ll have to try leaving the flour out next time! Less work is nice!

  2. Sounds delicious!

  3. This looks great and so fast! I think I have all the ingredients on hand too 🙂

    • Perfect! Let me know how you like it if you make it.

  4. I have been addicted to curry lately.. I make mine paleo (no processed foods) but its amazing. Something about coconut curry makes your tummy feel warm and happy.

    • Coconut curry sounds amazing!!
