Chicken Curry

Have you ever wondered why people say one thing and do another?  I have been having this happen to me all week! I don’t know about you, but when I say I am going to do something I do it! I might be late sometimes but I still always do what I  say I am going to do.  I don’t think that it is too much to ask others to do the same, yet it must be.   I also don’t understand why when the person doesn’t do what they said they would do they lie and make me feel like somehow I am to blame!  Well foodie friends, “No More!” I say. When people start treating us like that it is time to stand up for ourselves and point out the Hypocrisy!…….. or I can just leave them off my Christmas goodie baking list.  Chicken? Maybe but if I am chicken then I want to be this chicken!  It was sooo yummy!

This had so much flavor bursting from it that the portion that I had saved to take to work for my lunch actually became my breakfast! I just couldn’t wait till 1pm to have more of this fantastic dish! (yes I have regular food for breakfast…. like all the time….) I have this crazy thing when I come home from work and I have a taste for a particular cuisine I first look to see if have the ingredients to make something, and if not it is out the door to the Take Away!  When I have a hankering (did this preppy girl really just use that awful word?) for something then I must satisfy that need.  For this particular night it was Indian Food!!! I just adore Indian Food.  The spices, the aroma’s, the fantastic colors and history of this cuisine is just so satisfying to me.  Also my name, Chandra, is Sanskrit.  I have always had an interest and delight in all things Indian.  Remember my Bombay Pork Kebabs?  Well this Curry is even better than those!  I learned how to make Curry from my upstairs neighbors when we lived on Long Island, NY.  I was so proud the day she told me that my Curry Rice was very delicious.  I am refusing to believe that she was just being polite.  So without further ado here is the recipe:

Chicken Curry

Chicken Curry


  • 4 Boneless Skinless chicken breasts (for more flavor use bone in and cook longer)
  • 1 cup cooked white rice (I used jasmin)
  • 1/4 white onion diced
  • 1/4 cup green onions sliced
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins (you can use regular)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 4 tbs curry powder (use less depending on your liking.This is Maxed out flavor!)
  • salt, white and black pepper and ginger powder for season the breast
  • seasame oil and olive oil


  • season the chicken breast with salt, both peppers and ginger powder to taste(not sure what your taste is go with 1 tsp of each) drizzle the seasame oil and coat.
  • in a hot pan sear the chicken breast aprox 3-4 min each side and remove and keep warm
  • in the same pan drizzle some olive oil and saute the chopped white onion aprox 5 min
  • add the chicken back in and the coconut milk and the curry powder
  • cook till no longer pink
  • add the raisins and green onions cook 2 min
  • pour chicken mixture into the rice and mix till combined and the rice is heated through if it has cooled off
  • plate and eat your fantastic Curry!
