Chicken and Potato Curry

Posted on May 6, 2010. Filed under: chicken, poultry, recipe | Tags: , , , , |

This recipe seems a lot more complicated than it is. Take it step by step, and you’ll be enjoying home cooked curry in no time!

For the Chicken:

Grill 2 Chicken Breasts for 6 minutes per side. An optional step is to coat the chicken with a yogurt mix, let it sit in the fridge for a few hours, and then grill. After chicken cools, cut it into medium sized chunks.

Suggested Yogurt Mix:

Half Cup Plain Yogurt
1 Tbs. Honey

2 Tsp. Curry Powder
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder
1 Tsp. Ground Ginger
1 Tsp. Ground Corriander

*You could also bake/broil the chicken, or simply cut it into chunks and let it cook in the curry sauce for 15 minutes. It’s up to you.

For the Potatoes:

2 Yukon Gold Potatoes, cut into 2 inch wedges
2 Tbs. Olive Oil
Pinch salt & pepper
Rub potatoes with oil/salt/pepper. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 25 minutes.

For the Curry:

Add, to a medium-hot pan:
2 Tbs. Ghee (or 1 Tbs Olive Oil and 1 Tbs Butter)
1 Tbs. Curry Powder
*
1 Tsp. (or more!) Chili Powder
1 Tsp. Ground Corriander
1 Tsp. Salt

Stir constantly for one minute, and then add:
One Clove Garlic, minced
One Small Onion, diced
1 Tbs Minced Ginger

Stir one more minute, and then add:
2 Cups Pureed Tomato
1 Cup Coconut Milk


Let simmer for 15 minutes, and then add cooked chicken and potatoes.
Finish with:
2 Tbs. Chopped Cilantro

*There are many curry powders out there. If possible, try to find an Indian market. They will have a much wider variety to choose from, and you can ask the staff to pick their favorites. If there are no markets locally, you should have no trouble finding a curry powder at your local grocery. Be sure to taste the powder before you add it- some are quite hot, so adjust your chili powder accordingly.

[…] A simple yogurt slather will do wonders for your grilled chicken. Yogurt’s combination of mild acidity and calcium work to tenderize the meat. You’ll be able to mix a lot of flavor in, too. Serve the chicken as is, or add it to a salad or flavorful curry. […]
