Chicken Curry Notes

I learned to make this when I lived in Singapore. It is much easier than you would expect, a real crowd pleaser, and quickly became a family favorite as well as a requested dish for dinner parties.

  • 4 large chicken breasts, each cut in thirds
  • 1 large onion
  • 6-8 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) Hot Curry Powder
  • 3 cans coconut milk (unsweetened)
  • 10 new potatoes, cut in half
  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 1 small bag baby carrots
Serves / Yields

8-10 servings

Preparation Instructions

Chop chicken breasts into thirds. In a bowl, pour half of the curry powder over the chicken, toss and let set. In a food processor, finely chop onion and garlic together. Heat olive oil, add the onion mixture. Cook for a couple of minutes. Pour the other half of the curry powder in with the cooked onion mixture. Stir and cook for a minute to release the flavors. Add chicken and stir to coat. Add 2 cans of the coconut milk, cover and simmer about an hour. Add vegetables and the last can of coconut milk. Cover and simmer another hour or so until the potatoes are tender.

Allow about 3 hours to prepare.

Helpful Hints

I serve it with a slotted spoon and a ladle over rice. I always make a cucumber yogurt salad and hot bread with it. The curry is spicy and the cucumber salad acts as a cooling agent. The Spice House's 'Hot Curry Powder' made the best curry since I had the spices blended by hand in a Singaporeian market!

Curry powder again!

Make it Again? Richard W. would not make this recipe again.

This dish has plenty of quality heat and curry flavor but came out quite watery and sort of lifeless in terms of consistency. Thicken it up and you've got a winner!
