Curried Chicken Breast

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Deb Wolf

Loosely based on a recipe I cut from the Daily Herald years ago. I added this, omitted that until it was just right. I use RedGold brand of tomatoes with HOT chili peppers, use whatever level of heat you enjoy. You can swap out for plain tomatoes and leave out the cayenne and it's still yummy. Use a large high sided skillet to contain spatters. I use my non-stick dutch oven. Pre-measuring everything helps.

WOW...., I found this through a search for using "ON HAND" ingredients Chicken Breasts Potato, Curry were the selections I chose. The site is: and I was directed to a list of optional sites and recipes. As I am already very comfortable with that was where I selected my choice. THIS IS AMAZING and very easy. I only changed two things; I used fresh new red potatoes (quartered) with about 1/2 cup of water instead of canned. I also used Greek fat free plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Followed the steps exactly, but simmered on low about 10 additional minutes for the fresh potatoes. Served over mildly curried Basmati rice. I will never use another curried chicken recipe again. This is amazing and can be prepared a little ahead of time and reheated. Thank you so much for posting Deb. You picked a real GOTO Winner... (*.*)....... Laura Allarie from Princeton, BC
