One of the things I enjoy doing is cooking. I don’t have a favourite style, I just enjoy cooking in general. I like eating too, so these go hand in hand quite nicely.
In any case I got in from work today and threw together a quick and easy chicken curry. You’ll notice that some of the ingredients don’t have any quantities, this is because I didn’t measure them and used whatever I had in the kitchen. This recipe will take around 45 minutes or so to prepare and cook.
Ingredients (Serves 2 or 3) medium spicy
- 1 pack of chicken breast fillets cut into cubes
- 1 onion chopped finely
- 2 garlic cloves chopped finely or crushed
- 1 chilli pepper finely chopped (can be left out)
- 1 bell pepper finely chopped
- mushrooms chopped
- small piece of root ginger, peeled and grated
- 2 tbsp curry powder (adjust to taste)
- 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
- half a chopped tomato tin of cold water
- Spray oil or cooking oil (depends how healthy you want it)
- Rice or cauliflower to accompany
I use 1 cal spray oil as it is healthier than using glugs of oil, but whatever you want to use.
Fry the onions and garlic in a pan until browned. Add the chopped chilli pepper and grated ginger and fry for another 2 or 3 minutes.
Add 1 tbsp of the curry powder and stir in well, fry for a further 1 minute.
Add the cubed chicken and brown off, then add the chopped tomatoes, and the cold water.
Stir in the chopped bell pepper, mushrooms, and the rest of the curry powder. bring back to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes.
While the curry is simmering cook the rice or cauliflower. Adjust timings so everything is done at the same time.
This is really easy to make and most people have these ingredients in the fridge/store cupboards.
