Curry Chicken Chicken

I'll just say it, I was chicken to make curry chicken. I'm also chicken to make ox tail. Why? Because those are two of K's favorite meals. Any time we're out with an excuse to get food he will aim for the curry... or a roti. Last night I went for it, with the help of several friends, I felt like I could do it.

Here is the Ultimate Curry Chicken

You’ll Need…

3 Lbs Dark Chicken on the bone
3/4 tablespoon salt
dash black pepper
1/4 hot pepper (scotch bonnet, habanero or any hot pepper you like) *Optional.
heaping tablespoon curry powder (madras) I used the regular old yellow curry powder from Basics and added about 1/2tsp of Garam Masala (you can get that at Bulk Barn)
1/4 teaspoon roasted Geera (powder) aka Cumin powder
1 medium tomato diced (I used canned)
1 medium onion sliced
2 cloves garlic sliced
1 teaspoon green seasoning mix (This is what you do with the leftover cilantro from the fish tacos)
2 + 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Juice of 1 lime or lemon
1 1/2 cups water
6 tablespoons water (to cook curry)
1 scallion
Shado beni (see note below) substitute cilantro or culantro

My house smelled really good last night, the curry chicken, and then my sister made some red velvet cupcakes. It's a wonder I didn't ruin dinner 'sampling' everything.

I served it with rice and peas (peas and rice for you JR), and a bottle of hot sauce on the side for K.

We all ate it up, even Demi, who, upon looking at it proclaimed "I don't like that".

K said it could have used some more salt, seeing as how I forgot to put the salt in in the first place, that makes sense. lol We give this recipe 8 stars!

Tonight we were supposed to have fajitas and 'fries supreme' but a last minute audition call for Demi will mean take out tonight. Sometimes plans change, and that's fine. We'll push it back to Saturday.

Really me,
Not so chicken


  1. What we really need to know is ... did you take the skin off the chicken? *L*

    1. I took the skin off of 5/6 pieces of chicken. I gave K one piece without, and the piece with the skin. It was gross and slimy and I wouldn't go near it, but he actually said he liked that piece best! It held on to the flavor more. Ewww. Boys are gross... but he proceeded to chew the bone and clean his plate, so I guess I can't complain.
