Directions

  1. Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. In a small bowl mix together 1 teaspoon of the curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon of the ground ginger, the garlic powder and the paprika; rub seasonings over both sides of chicken.

  6. To the skillet add the zucchini and broth; cover; bring to a boil.
  7. Stir in the rice and dried currants; cover; remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes until the rice is tender; blend well. Add the cooked shrimp and blend well again.
