We all need a good chicken curry in a hurry! This my most popular recipe on the blog. It’s quick and tasty with a
few veggies flung in for good measure. I haven’t had a child (or adult) refuse it yet.
I stick the ingredients on my shopping list every week as it’s a handy recipe to have up my sleeve when I need it. Also, for any of the big kids following Slimming World, this curry is 4 Syns for the lot! This recipe serves 4 easily, working out at 1 Syn per portion and really worth it.
Sometimes I serve the kids first and turn up the heat on my own by adding in a few chopped chilies, topping with fresh coriander.
- olive oil / Frylight
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1 onion
- 2 celery sticks
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 1 heaped tablespoon plain flour
- 1 heaped teaspoon ginger powder
- 2 tablespoons mild curry powder (the Lidl one is really mild, the Schwartz one has a little kick)
- 1 heaped teaspoon turmeric
- 1 chicken stock pot (optional)
- 1 pint of chicken stock
Grate or chop your onion, crush the garlic and chop the celery as small as you can.
Chop your chicken breasts and leave to one side.
Spray a saucepan with some olive oil or Frylight and add the onion, garlic and celery, cooking for a couple of minutes until softened.
Add in the chopped chicken and cook for another 10 minutes.
Put in a heaped tablespoon of flour and stir. Slowly add your pint of hot stock bit by bit as you stir until the mixture looks thick with no lumps.
Now for the spice! Stir in the mild curry powder, turmeric and ginger and a chicken stock pot. The stock pot is optional but it gives a good depth of flavour to the whole curry.
Turn the heat right down, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Serve with some rice or stir-fried veg to up the veggie intake!
This curry is quite mild so if you like yours a bit hotter, serve the kids first then add in some extra curry powder, tasting as you go.
