Directions

  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the onion and chicken until the onion is dark brown, and the chicken is golden, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, and stir in the garlic, curry powder, cinnamon, and clove. Cook and stir until the spices are fragrant and the garlic has softened slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the garbanzo beans, ketchup, tomato paste, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook 10 minutes. Uncover, and increase heat to medium-high, and allow the sauce to reduce to your desired consistency. Stir in additional water if too thick. Garnish with cilantro to serve.

I had to tweak this recipe before I even started cooking it but it was a good base recipe. I used garam masala (cardamom cloves cinamon cumin seeds corriander seeds toasted and ground) extra curry more black pepper and chopped cilantro in the pan not only for garnish. I chopped up a few fresh very hot cayenne peppers too. (Too many to use up this summer!!) I used 1/3 can of diced tomatoes and a few small fresh plum tomatoes to get a nice sauce rather than only ketchup (I omitted) and water. At the end I stirred in about 1/3c low fat plain yogurt. I served with jasmine rice. Delish. No way would the recipe as written have enough spice and flavor. I noticed a lot of recipes on here are very base and simple and someone who knows there way around the kitchen can really jack them up to awesome! Read More

Liked the idea of this but it was a little boring so doubled or tripled the garlic made my own spicy curry powder dumped in other random curry-type spices such as more cinnamon ginger cumin allspice and coriander. Also added a healthy dose of chopped up habanero as we do serious spice in our house. The extra water is definitely needed to give it a good stewey sauce for the rice and I even added a can of diced tomatoes although I think that ended up making it too tomatoey and not enough curry.

I made this as directed except I used 2 chicken breasts instead of 1. This was an excellent dish. It was easy had a good flavor and is low in fat. Next time I may use some cayenne pepper to add some heat but it was still very good without that. Read More

This was not bad but honestly not that exciting. Definitlely not a "wow" dish it was just o.k. I felt that the cinnamon was a little overpowering. If I ever make this again I will cut the cinnamon in half. I also added large junks of tomatoes. Read More

Of course I made a few tweaks to this recipe but we really enjoyed it. I added diced carrots to the minced onion and made my own bbq sauce with tomato puree molasses etc. I also added garam marsala to the dish after it finished simmering on the stove. You could serve this over rice or couscous but I prefered to just eat it as is. Filling healthy flavorful. Thanks for sharing your recipe Claudia. It was very good. Read More

My husband made this dish and it was overall pretty good and easy to make. We did feel that the ketchup or the lemon juice gave it a funky after taste or flavor. We really can't pin it down what it was that caused the flavor to be off for us. We did add more chicken than the recipe indicated. Read More

The taste itself if fine except that it isn't exactly curry... I should have known when the ingredients called for tomato paste... but alas... I was so hoping that it would somehow taste like curry. It taste like a Morrocan stew. Still good and easy to make just don't expect it to taste like curry.... Read More
