If you love Asian or Indian food as much as I do, then, for sure, you’ve already had chicken curry before. It’s one of my favorites, and I love to eat it with ‘roti prata’, which is another Indian-influenced flatdish bread. This dish can be eaten with rice, too.
Oh, I can still remember those days I visited Singapore, Malaysia, and Hongkong. I never failed to look for an Indian restaurant just to satisfy my cravings for curry, be it lamb, beef, or chicken. Among the three types, chicken is, of course, the easiest to cook. And that’s what I am sharing with you today. 🙂
If you follow the traditional Indian Chicken Curry, you can expect a lot of spices, which make the recipe brimming with flavor and aroma. But if you want to skip those spices, you can simply utilize curry powder, which you can easily find at any grocery store. No worries, it’s going to be as good as what you can find at the Asian restaurants.
At first, chicken curry might look intimidating, but it’s really very easy to make. In fact, this Asian Chicken Curry only requires 4 ingredients. It’s the simplest curry recipe that you can put together in your own kitchen!
With only a few ingredients, this Asian Chicken Curry recipe will surely satisfy your cravings for Asian and Indian food. Aromatic, flavorful, and delightful! It’s the best!
6 chicken breast halves (boneless, skinless, and cut into strips)
2 large onions (diced)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup curry powder
- In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add the onions and cook until tender and brown.
- Stir in curry powder. Blend the ingredients well.
- Add chicken and simmer until thoroughly cooked. Make sure to cover the skillet. This may take about 40 to 50 minutes.
- Remove the cover and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
You can add more curry powder if you want the taste to be richer. When simmering, make sure to stir occasionally to avoid burning. Curry powder tends to burn easily. You can add a little bit of water, too.
- Cuisine: Asian, Indian
Like what I said earlier, chicken curry can be consumed with rice. That’s how they usually do it in Asia.
Looking at the list of ingredients and the steps for cooking chicken curry, you really don’t have to be in the kitchen all day long to make an Asian-Indian-inspired curry. In fact, curry powder is the only spice that you would need.
Is There Anything Else That Can Be Added?
Well, if you want your chicken curry to have vegetables, you are free to add some carrots and potatoes. I’ve tried this myself many times! 🙂 And also, if you want the sauce to be a little bit creamier and thicker, feel free to add either evaporated milk or coconut milk. The latter, though, is highly recommended. And then, you can season with a pinch of salt and pepper, too.
So there you go with another super easy chicken recipe that you can make for lunch or dinner. Stay tuned for more! 🙂
