Curried Chicken

Easy, Skinny Curry Chicken


This curry chicken has more of a dry rub texture to it.  Because it doesn’t involve a sauce, it is very figure friendly, and super tasty.   If you are looking for a saucy curry chicken, see my Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe.  ([Photo Credit]

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 medium onions chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

3/4 tsp grated fresh ginger (less than 1/4 tsp ground because tsp fresh grated = 1/4 tsp dry ground)

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 tbsp curry powder ( I use Jamaican Curry powder)

juice from 1/2 a lemon (1 tbl)

Handful of toasted almonds or cashews (0ptional)

Cut chicken into small pieces (bite size or only a little larger). Saute onions in coconut oil over medium heat until translucent. Add garlic and ginger; saute another 2 minutes.  Push onion mixture to side of pan, add chicken and brown on both sides.  Add curry powder; stir well to incorporate into onions and chicken. Simmer covered for 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice  and nuts if using, toss well.  Serve over hot basmati or jasmine rice.  Serves 4.
