HOW TO MAKE INDIAN CURRY CHICKEN

If you have never made Indian Curry Chicken before, the spices may seem intimidating!  Instead of using a bunch of spices to make our own curry powder, I opt for the already made version from the spice section of the grocery store.  This makes the recipe super easy!

In addition to the curry powder, this recipe calls for onion, chicken breast, coconut milk, ginger, and garlic.

We start off by cutting our onion into large chunks and frying them in oil until they are golden brown.

Add in the curry powder with the onions and sauté for about a minute.  We want to cook the curry powder to bloom the spices for better flavor.

Next comes the chicken, coconut milk, ginger, and garlic.

The coconut milk will be very thick and you may need a spatula to get it out of the can.  You can lighten this recipe by using lite coconut milk, but the curry will not be as thick.

Stir this occasionally until the chicken is cooked through…about 10 minutes.  This recipe comes out to 9 weight watchers points if you use the full fat coconut milk and 9 Net Carbs.  Not too shabby!
