TRY THIS DELICIOUS CHICKEN CURRY

Delicious Chicken Curry

If you haven’t already, check out Christie’s Quick Chicken Curry recipe. As soon as I saw it I was inspired.  Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I’m a tinkerer.  That’s why, when I saw that recipe I wanted to try it but also make some changes to it.

The main reason is that I’m experimenting with FODMAP at the moment. That means from Christie’s recipe I have to drop the very first two ingredients – two of my favourites in fact – garlic and onion.

That being said, here’s my delicious chicken curry recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Butter or oil (for pan)
  • 700g of Chicken breasts
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber
  • 4 Summer Squash
  • 2 heads of bok choy
  • Indian Spice Mix*
  • 1 tin of coconut cream
  • 2 tomatoes

*This Indian spice blend is my own concoction. It contains (ground): Cayenne Peppers, Chilli flakes, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, turmeric and pepper. All applied fairly liberally, save the hot cayenne peppers.

Method:

  • Pan on moderate heat (4/10 on mine)
  • Grease the pan with the butter
  • Cube the chicken breasts
  • Add the chicken breasts and brown them

*Make sure you prevent the added ingredients from sticking while you prep the rest*

  • Finely dice the sweet potato and add to the mix
  • This is where I would add the Indian spice mix
  • Now finely dice the carrots, zucchini, cucumber and squash
  • Give it a good stir
  • Add the tomatoes and coconut cream
  • Cut up and add the bok choi
  • Stir for a couple of minutes to get everything coated
  • Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or so.

Obviously, to make this vegetarian you can just remove the chicken, or exchange it for tofu, etc.
