Chicken Curry

Source: Everyday Food, December 2003


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped (3/4 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons medium to hot curry powder
  • Coarse salt
  • 3/4 pound small red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes (preferably zesty flavored), with juice
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Place flour on a plate. Dredge chicken in flour, shaking off excess. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add chicken, and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a bowl; set aside.

  2. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in same skillet; cook onion and garlic, stirring frequently, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in curry powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt; cook 1 minute more.

  3. Add potatoes and 1 cup water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer; cover, and cook until potatoes are just tender but still offer slight resistance when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, about 7 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and 1/4 cup water.

  4. Return chicken to skillet along with any accumulated juices in bowl; simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.

    We used medium curry powder (about 1 T) and regular diced tomatoes. It was ultra bland and also very liquids -- I would suggest reducing the sauce for a few minutes at the end or adding corn starch to thicken. A very disappointing curry -- would be better to use a paste.

    We're minimizing our carb intake. What would you think about using cut up apples instead of the potatoes? Would you miss the thickening power of potatoes?

    My family enjoyed this so much, I'll definitely be making it again. I'm not much of a cook so I'm quite chuffed at how well it turned out!

    This was delicious, both my boyfriend and I loved it. I served it with jasmine rice, roasted cauliflower and topped it off with some golden raisins and major grey's mango chutney. Will most definitely be making again!

    My family loved it. I would recommend using the zesty tomatoes. I served with basmati and would have seasoned it.
