Chicken Curry Recipe
Updated: Jun 25, 2020
1 box of S&B Golden Curry. You only need a small one, it will be vertical not horizontal. They have mild, medium, medium hot and hot. I recommend either mild or medium if people are not used to it. There is a 'hot' version which I like to use. I prefer this brand, but have used other brands in a similar fashion. Substitute S&B brand with Sukhi's Classic Indian Curry Sauce for a gluten free option without losing the taste.
1 Large Sweet Onion (Vidalia or Spanish)
1 pound bag of carrots. For easier prep, buy the shredded bag of carrots
1 celery head
3+ boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
2 cups Chicken Broth
Seasonings as desired. I have Salt, Cayenne Pepper, and Garlic Powder pictured
Trim all fat off of breasts.
Slice breasts in half, lengthwise (not optional), place between cling wrap and pound (optional)
Slice breast crosswise into strips
Start your rice in the rice cooker or on the stove.
Chop onions, (slices or small pieces, doesn't matter)
Rinse off carrots and celery in the sink.
Slice carrots and celery, the thinner the slices, the more quickly they cook and more tender they will be. I normally only use 3-4 stalks of celery and a generous handful of carrots.
Place onions and chicken in olive oil with a little butter in the bottom of a pot enough to cook the onions and chicken. Cook onions and chicken approx. 10 minutes at medium-high heat. Some will be brown and some will be white, but don't burn.
Add 2 cups chicken broth simmer to slight boil. While this is simmering, cut up the block of curry or break apart in your hands. The smaller the pieces, the better it will dissolve. Lower heat to 'low' and dissolve the curry in the hot broth. Make sure you stir it to get out the clumps, if it is too thick, add more chicken broth.
As soon as the curry is dissolved, add all of the chopped celery and carrots into the pot, cover and cook covered, low heat for about 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the carrots and celery are thin, 20 minutes should do it, if you like them firm, then 15. Use your judgement.
Add seasoning as desired
You don't want the bottom of the pot to burn so don't forget to stir.
Serve over white rice!!
