Super Simple, Super Quick Chicken Curry and Rice

Super Simple, Super Quick Chicken Curry and Rice created by Taunya M.

I had never made curry before but decided to give it a shot. I would call this recipe a medium-hot dish. I put in quite a bit of curry, but there is a lot of rice and chicken for it to cover. This recipe is for 1 person, but can be easily multiplied. If you use chicken stock for this recipe do not use the chicken base

ingredients

directions

  • Dissolve chicken base in hot water (skip this step if using stock).
  • Pour dissolved base/stock in 2" deep pan.
  • Add chicken to pan and place on medium-high heat.
  • Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT rice.
  • Cook chicken uncovered, stirring often to coat with spices.
  • Remove chicken from heat and cover to keep warm. You will use the liquid from the pan in the next step.
  • Add rice to separate pan and prepare as directed, BUT instead of using water to cook, add the drippings from the chicken pan. I usually get about 1/2 cup of drippings and then top that off with the water necessary to cook the rice. The rice I use needs 1 1/3 cup of water for 1/2 cup uncooked rice. This will yield 2 cups of cooked rice.
  • When rice is finished cooking, spoon rice back into chicken pan and place on medium-high heat for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

    I used chicken thighs and made 2 cups of rice. I used a curry base,garlic, chili powder, onion powder, roasted curry powder, unrpasted curry powder and black pepper! It'd a lot, but it came out SMOKING GOOD! I LOVE THIS RECIPE, however, with my additions, it was FABULOUS! Thank you!

    This is a good baseline for a simple curry. I added a splash of milk & 1 TBLSP of sour cream. I also added salt & pepper to taste. I kept the rice separate & treated it like a sauce. I had simmered for 20 minutes or so to reduce & turned out wonderful!! My kids & husband are asking for more. Will be doing it again.
