Elaine’s Curried Chicken

I went to the Bridal Show and one of the caterer’s had a booth set up and were letting passers-by taste the curried chicken and risotto they had made. It was delightful!  I found a recipe that I liked and of course had to modify it because I didn’t have the exact ingredients it called for and figured I could make it better :-)

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder (I use mild curry powder)
  • 2 teaspoons chili pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I use No Salt)
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 inch strips
  • 1 (8 ounce) carton plain fat-free yogurt
  • 14 oz of canned tomatoes (half a large can) including half of the liquid
  • 1 can of sliced carrots (drained and rinsed)

Preparation:

Combine first 8 ingredients.   Saute onion & garlic for 5 minutes in olive oil in a large frying pan or dutch oven, stirring frequently (medium to low heat).  Stir in spice mixture; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add chicken; cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently (medium heat).

Combine yogurt, hot sauce, and tomatoes.  Add yogurt mixture and carrots

Bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally.  Serve over rice and enjoy!
