Chicken Chicken Curry

Rating: 4 stars 33
There are a hundred different ways to cook chicken curry, but Bengalis (from the eastern part of India) make something called Kosha (or kawshaa) which is very good with either rice or any kind of flat bread. This recipe is called moorgi kosha (or chicken kosha), but my friend Jennie calls it Chicken Chicken Curry!

Green Coconut Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 51
While there is a nice dose of red curry powder in the braise, it's certainly not the dominant flavor. For something that might seem exotic and boldly-spiced, this a surprisingly mellow dish.

Jamaican Style Curry Chicken

A Jamaican-style curry chicken. Rich, hearty, and as spicy as you like.

Yellow Curry Chicken with Jasmine Rice

Rating: 5 stars 30
This is a mix of several different recipes to create a hybrid of Thai and Indian curry chicken. It has a bit of a kick to it, but is a very tasty kick of spice. There is also a layer of sweetness, which gives it a good mix of sweet and hot. Served over jasmine rice added another dimension to the flavor.

Chef John's Chicken Tikka Masala

Rating: 5 stars 539
I probably get more requests for Indian food than any other ethnic cuisine, so I was very excited to be posting this recipe for chicken tikka masala; until I found out it's actually a British recipe. This is usually done with heavy cream, but I like to use coconut milk instead; the subtle sweetness it provides works beautifully with the spices in the dish. Serve with steamed rice.

This hits all the tastes: sweet, salty, spicy, and umami. Serve on rice with a sprinkle of chopped cilantro and lime wedges on the side. If you cook with boneless chicken, reduce cooking time to 12 minutes for browning and 10 minutes for simmering.
