Chicken Curry

Made some chicken curry tonight with Pataks Mild Curry Paste 10 Oz (affiliate link).  You use about half a jar for a huge amount of curry.  I’ve followed the same basic recipe with various curry pastes and each one is slightly different but very good!  I got the recipe from Jamie’s Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals

Chicken Curry with Patak’s Mild Curry Paste

  • 2 Tbs oil
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 2 onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 chili, seeded and diced (optional)
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, leaves and stems separated, stems diced
  • 1/2 cup mild curry paste
  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 15 oz can coconut milk
  • 2 Tbs flaked coconut
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • yogurt
  • chutney (optional)
  1. Prep all the ingredients first so you can just add them to the pan as needed.
  2. Heat the oil and butter over medium high heat in a large skillet with a lid. Add the onions, cilantro stems and ginger--and chili if using. I often leave this out. Cook 10 minutes or so, stirring frequently.
  3. Add the curry paste, chicken, coconut milk, coconut, diced tomatoes and garbanzo beans. Fill the coconut milk can halfway with water and add that to the pan. Cover, bring to a simmer, stir, recover and cook 30 minutes, stirring now and then.
  4. Make your rice. Dish up the yogurt and chutney in small dishes for the table.
  5. Sprinkle the fresh cilantro leaves over the curry.
  6. Serve curry over rice with yogurt and chutney at the table.

Tonight I made this with a cilantro lime rice, basically mixing in lime zest, lime juice and chopped cilantro leaves into cooked rice. It also goes well with plain rice.

  2. […] is a mild curry. If you like a spicier curry, you can try this curry recipe. I think next time I make this I’ll cook up the cilantro stems along with some fresh ginger […]
