Chicken breasts sauteed and simmered with onion, olive oil and curry powder. Simplest chicken curry you'll ever make! Serve over hot cooked rice with a little side of mango chutney, if desired.

  • Remove cover from skillet and cook for an additional 15 minutes, until sauce reduces. (Note: Make sure that you stir and that dish does not burn, as curry powder burns very easily!)

All you need to make this recipe PERFECT is a can of chicken broth! By adding the broth and a little extra onion this recipe came out almost identical to my friends curried chicken and she's from Jamaica!! Also curry powders vary so only add as much powder as tastes good to you! This was soooo good I had no leftovers! Read More

This recipe provides a great starting point for a delicious easy curry. First I thinly sliced 3 large chicken breast halves and browned them in olive oil. While they were cooking I started the onion (in 3T. olive oil) in a separate skillet. To the onion I added sliced fresh mushrooms and some frozen peas. When the veggies were heated I added 3 T. curry some hot pepper flakes 2 C. chicken broth and 1/2 C. unsweetened coconut milk. Finally I stirred in the cooked chicken strips and let the whole thing cook for an additional 15 min. to reduce the broth. Served this over Texmati rice to my family of 4 and everyone really loved it! The 3 T. of curry powder seemed like plenty to us but that's personal perference. This recipe would get 5 stars except that it had to be tweaked quite a bit. Read More

I agree this recipe isn't perfect because it produces very little sauce if any. I read the reviews while making it and followed them. Simply add a cup or so of chicken broth and other ingredients to taste (onions green peppers extra curry powder) and it makes for an outstanding curry recipe you won't be dissatisfied. Read More

Good recipe but I took another's idea and added chicken broth otherwise it would not have any sauce to it. Also I added green pepper. Next time I would add onions and green peppers toward the end so they would keep some firmness to them. Read More

I tried this last night with the following changes based on other reviews. I added 1 can chicken broth. I also seasoned my chicken with salt pepper garlic salt and curry powder and let it marinate in the fridge for about 3 hours. After that I followed the recipe and my family loved this dish. Read More
