Maple Chicken Curry

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"My sister made this for me one time and I have made it for others and the recipe has been passed on so many times. My sister ate this at a friend's house and tried to re-create it without the recipe. She tried so many times and discovered that making it great had to do with the cream! Serve with basmati rice with saffron."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a separate skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, red bell pepper, and garlic until onion is translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add carrots and cook over low heat until carrots are slightly tender, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Mix chicken, cream, and curry paste into onion mixture and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Add maple syrup and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Although it should makes 4 servings, I usually double the recipe if making for 4 and have leftovers for lunch the next day.
  • Use mild, medium, or hot curry paste.
  • Add 2 tablespoons cornstarch with the maple syrup for a thicker sauce if desired.

Loved it. used coconut milk instead of heavy cream but maple syrup really added something good

I was a little skeptical because I wasn't sure about maple and also the grocery store didn't have curry paste. All the had were Marion's Kitchen curry kits which did have the paste inside. Goi...

It was good, but too sweet. I hadn't added the syrup and put in some garlic salt and it was perfect. Then I added it and it was too sweet for my husband and I. Next time I will leave out the syr...
