Steamed Chicken Curry with Kabocha

This is a simple and easy lunch or dinner recipe for chicken curry with kabocha pumpkin and eggplant. It's delicious, and the ingredients used are simple and easy to find. It's a great way to incorporate vegetables with meat in a dish so you get a well-balanced meal. This dish is very easy to make and is ready in less than 40 minutes. For this recipe, I've used chicken wingettes which can be cooked evenly in a microwave because of their flat shape. Serve over rice.

  • 10 chicken wings (wingettes)

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 eggplant

  • ½ pound kabocha squash - halved, seeded, and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces

  • ½ cup chicken stock


  1. Wash chicken wings well and dry with paper towels.

  2. Combine curry powder and salt together in a bowl. Toss in the chicken wings to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 20 minutes.

  3. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise and slice into several pieces diagonally. Soak in water to prevent browning.

  4. Place chicken in a microwave-safe bowl; distribute eggplant and kabocha evenly on top. Pour in chicken stock. Cover with a microwave-safe lid or plastic wrap. Cook in the microwave at 600 watts until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 7 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
