How To Make a Chicken Curry – Aromatic and Spicy

About How to Make a Chicken Curry

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. :)

Quick and Easy Chicken Breast Recipe – Lemon Makes It Refreshing

IMG_3080

There are so many variations of cooking a chicken breasts on the stove! Every time I need to cook a tasty dinner and I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen, I follow this quick and easy chicken breast recipe.

What I like about cooking a chicken breasts, is that it never takes a long time to prepare them.  In this simple, but a  delicious dish, I combine a fresh chicken breasts with quite a large amount of white onions and green olives. Adding the ingredients one by one while cooking a chicken breasts slowly, allowes the chicken to absorp the different tastes gradually. A taste of fresh lemon adds a special refreshing touch to your dish finally.

What makes a chicken breasts tasting special following this recipe,  is using a little saffron, which adds a significant colour to the chicken also.

There is no need to make an additional side dish to serve your chicken breasts with olives and lemon. I’ve tried to serve a simple cooked brown rice. It was a great combination! Also the brown rice is a very healthy side dish, rich in minerals and vitamins.

For the best result, it is good to soak the brown rice in the cold water for half an hour before you start to cook. Soaking in the water helps the rice to soften better.

Follow the simple steps to cook the brown rice:

  1. Soak the brown rice in the cold water for an hour and half.
  2. In the pot heat 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over medium heat.
  3. Rinse the brown rice in water.
  4. Add 1 cup of brown rice to the pot.
  5. Cover the brown rice with 2 and 1/2 cups cold water.
  6. Season with a little sea salt.
  7. Wait until it starts to boil.
  8. Lower the heat.
  9. Cook 30 minutes over a very low heat.
  10. Serve and enjoy.

I hope you will enjoy cooking your quick and easy chicken breasts dinner. I’d be more than happy to receiving your comments below. :)
