Cooking Chicken Curry

If you’re new to the world of curry, welcome! If you’ve never cooked with coconut milk or curry paste, they can be found in most grocery stores in the international food section. You’ll want to use canned coconut milk for this dish, as it will help to give your dish the right consistency.

To start this dish, begin by sautéing the chicken and onions together in a pan so that they create a base for the rest of the ingredients. Then, place 1/2 cup of warm water into a small bowl and add the bouillon, flour, curry paste and peanut butter. If you’re wondering about peanut butter in a curry, trust us, it may sound odd but adds excellent flavor. You can substitute the peanut butter for almond or cashew butter, if that’s what you have on hand. The results will be just as delicious. 

Next, add the curry mixture into your chicken and onions along with the carrots, minced garlic, can of coconut milk and brown sugar. Stir the ingredients together and allow them to cook together as this is when the flavors will blend. Once the dish has simmered for about 10 minutes, do a taste test to see how you like it. Make any necessary adjustments and serve your curry over warm jasmine or basmati rice.
