Chicken Curry (chip shop style)

So many of you asked me for a simple and quick chicken curry, this is one of two I made.

This one is for those who love to cook but want something quick.

This one uses almost the same base as the Basic Chicken Curry Recipe, the addition of a few extra herbs and spices really makes the world of difference and transforms it into something wonderful.

Use the curry powder in the plastic tubs you find in supermarkets. Don’t use the ones in the glass jars from Sharwood’s etc

I used the Tesco and Aldi medium ones so far and found them both good.

Using your raw meat chopping board if you have one cut the chicken fillets into cubes, season with a little salt and pepper, then fry on a preheated pan until it has a nice colour.

Strain the sauce then add the chicken and simmer for a further 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens and the flavour intensifies. (OPTIONAL: Add peppers or onions or even peas if you like them)

    I cook this curry almost every week . It’s really tasty. It’s also great using tiger prawns. Just cook raw prawns in the sauce till they turn from grey to pink.

    I make this at least 3 times a month. I had a bet with my sister in law. I bet that I could make and serve this Chicken Curry quicker than she could order one and have it delivered from our local Chinese Take away. I WON lol 😉

    This really is a great Chinese style curry. With no MSG! .. YEAY!!
    For that really genuine “caramelised” flavour, try frying slices of banana with the onions and garlic, wait until it’s golden brown both side, this really adds that sweet caramel flavour.
