I would like to share with you my favorite recipe how to make a chicken curry. In my recipe I combine a plenty of fresh vegetables with chicken. You can make this curry using vegetables only, if you like vegetarian meals. I prefer to make a curry with chicken.
I always use a fresh chicken breasts instead of frozen. The fresh chicken tends to be much more juicy and tender. In my chicken curry recipe I use quite a lot spices to make my chicken curry. The mixture of all the spices in combination with a coconut milk, makes the chicken curry incredibly aromatic and tasty. Either using of fresh curry leaves or a ground indian curry powder is great to add a special touch to your chicken curry.
You can make your chicken curry in the strength of your choice. In this recipe I use the whole green chilli peppers. I don’t deseed them, so my chicken curry is quite spicy in the result. And the best chicken curry should be spicy! If you prefer a milder taste, just cut your green chilli peppers lenghtwise and deseed them.
I also add potatoes and sweet potatoes to the chicken curry. Sweet potatoes add a slightly sweet taste to the chicken curry and help to balance the acidity of the tomatoes, I use to cook in the chicken curry also. Adding the potatoes to the chicken curry helps to thicken the sauce at the end of cooking. So don’t worry if you feel like your chicken curry sauce is not thick enough.
You can substitute the fresh tomatoes for a tin of peeled plum tomatoes, if you don’t have any at the moment. I cook a chicken slowly until tender, in the smooth sauce of tomatoes and coconut milk. I don’t like to overcook the vegetables and potatoes.. I add them gradually during the cooking, because each kind of vegetables deserves a different time of cooking.
The side dish is really not necessary to serve with your chicken curry. Just in case you would prefer having a light side dish, the fluffy basmati rice is great to serve with.
Hope you will get inspired by my recipe about how to make a chicken curry and you will enjoy cooking your dinner.
Making burritos is simple and the most of people enjoy burritos as a quick to prepare lunch or dinner. I usually make my burritos using a chicken breasts, cut into chunks. The most favorite combination to make a burrito filling in our family is a chicken with red beans.
I don’t make the chicken burritos too much spicy usually. Adding a cayenne red pepper makes the burritos spicy enough. Those who prefer to enjoy eating a very spicy burritos, can add the hot tomato salsa on the top of filling before wrapping up the burritos.
I like to prepare the chicken for burritos in advance. It makes chicken tasting even more delicious, once it has enough time to absorb all the spices. I combine the chicken with all the spices in the large bowl. Always use the larger bowl than the one you thought you’d need. I put the chicken into the fridge to let it rest for at least one hour. Also you can prepare your chicken a day before.
The rest of preparing your chicken burritos is very quick and easy. It is not necessary to overcook the chicken. I usually cook it for 5 – 7 minutes until cooked through, stirring constantly. The chicken will start to produce quite enough juices. I wait until the juices reduce slightly, before adding the red beans finally. I combine chicken with red beans, stirring for additional 1-2 minutes. Then I remove my burrito filling from the heat.
Heat your wheat tortillas slightly and arrange the chicken and red beans filling in the middle of each of them. Wrap the tortillas tightly to make burritos and serve immediately.
I hope you will enjoy making your homemade chicken burritos and you will get inspired by my simple recipe. Looking forward to receiving your comments below.
I like making this simple dish anytime. What I like about tacos the most, is that it looks nice, colourfully, it is low in fats, so healthy. Also, I like that I can make easy chicken tacos for dinner, but also anytime to make a healthy snack.
If you have enough time, prepare your chicken meat combined with spices in advance a let it rest in the fridge for one hour at least. This will help chicken to absorb all the spices and taste better once cooked.
I also make it easy with serving my tacos. I arrange all the ingredients in the separate bowls. Then I place a warm chicken, tortillas and cream next to the served vegetables. I make so called “tacos bar”. It not only looks great nad fresh, full of different colours, but everybody can help yourself to create their tacos and bring it to the table on the serving plate and enjoy with others.
There are many variantions of what to fill your tacos with. I am sharing my favorite and simple combination of chicken, green salad, spring onions and homemade tomato salsa, topped with a dollop of a sour cream.
Tomato salsa made from fresh tomatoes, cannot miss on the homemade chicken tacos. I used to make it from a cherry tomatoes and habanero peppers. But be careful. Habanero makes your salsa quite hot. You don’t have to use it all, start with a little chopped habanero, taste for intensity, add more chopped habanero peppers if needed. If you prefer making a milder tomato salsa, use jalapeno peppers.
Prepare your fresh tomato salsa. This will add a special touch to your chicken tacos.
