A Little Time and a Keyboard: Chicken Curry {Munchie Monday}

Chicken Curry {Munchie Monday}

Monday, March 11, 2013

It has been ages since we have made a chicken curry. So after buying some beautiful, fresh curry powder, I was inspired to make some. I found a recipe that first appeared in Cooking Light and changed it a little to fit our tastes. The recipe is pretty simple. I was amazed by how well the flavors melded together in a relatively short time. With some of my soup recipes, it seems like it is better to make them one day and eat them the next for the best flavor. This curry was delicious off the bat! Here is what I came up with:

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup finely chopped yellow onion
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 lb skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes (approximate)
1 Tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp sage
2 cups coarsely chopped tomato
1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup sugar snap peas
1/2 cup plain, fat-free yogurt
1 tsp flour

First, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Then, heat the onion and garlic in the skillet for 4 minutes. Make sure to stir them a little during this time. Next, add the chicken cubes, curry powder, cumin, and sage. Heat for 4 more minutes while stirring a couple of times.  After the 4 minutes, add the tomato, vegetable broth, and cayenne pepper. Lower the heat and let simmer for 13 minutes, covered. Then, add the sugar snap peas and continue to simmer while covered for 2-3 minutes. Whisk flour into yogurt. Once the sugar snap peas are steamed, add in yogurt mixture. Cook about 1 minute until it is thickened slightly. Serve with couscous.

This recipe makes 4 servings.


  1. Looks delicious! I don't think I could get my husband to eat it though. I may just have to make it when he isn't home.

    1. It is really yummy! The original recipe did not have sugar snap peas in it, but I think they really added to the dish. My husband doesn't do seafood, so I often make that when he isn't home! :)

  2. I love curry!! This looks like a good one to try out. Pinning!
