How to Cook Chicken Curry

If you’re new to the world of curry, welcome! Before you get started, if you’ve never cooked with coconut milk or curry paste, they can be found in almost every grocery store in the international food section, you’ll want to find the canned coconut milk as it will help to give your dish consistency.

First, start by sautéing the chicken and onions together in a pan so that they create a base for the rest of the ingredients. Use half a cup of warm water but place it in a medium sized bowl to add the additional 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 an excellent savory taste. If you prefer almond butter or have some on hand, swap it in for the peanut butter.

Next, add that mixture into your chicken and onions along with the carrots, minced garlic, can of coconut milk, brown sugar. This is where it gets good, stir the ingredients together and it is important to let them sit together as this is where the flavor blending magic happens. Once they have simmered together for a about 10 minutes, do a taste test to see how you like it and serve over warm Jasmine Rice.
