The Poor Chef: 7 Recipes for $7
Granny’s Curry Chicken
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
1/3 cup golden raisins (optional)
1/4 cup toasted, slivered almonds
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons yellow curry powder, or to taste
4 skinless, boneless, chicken breast halves (1 to 1 1/2 pounds)
1 cup yogurt
Minced fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish
Put the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When hot, add the onions (and optional raisins), sprinkle with some salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent; about 5 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium, sprinkle with half of the curry powder, and continue to cook a minute or two.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and sprinkle it with the remaining curry powder. Move the onion to one side of the skillet and add the chicken in one layer. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate. Add the yogurt and stir constantly over medium-low heat until the mixture is nice and thick. (Be careful not to bring to a simmer or the yogurt will curdle.)
Return the chicken to the skillet and cook for a couple more minutes or until cooked through, turning once. Sprinkle with the toasted almonds, garnish with cilantro or parsley and serve with rice.
Chef Charles’ Thoughts: Being from Jamaica, I love curry. This is a bit of a twist on the typical way of making this dish. I love recipes where you can make it your own. Spice up your family dinner and allow new flavors in your home. This recipe can be made without the yogurt to keep it simpler.
