Tonight’s dinner was attempt at making Curry Chicken. Curry has always been a spice blend that I was intimidated by, but my oldest son wanted to try it. So when we made our trip to Fresh Market this weekend I made sure to purchase a pounch Madras Curry Powder from their display of fresh spices.
My first step was to cube up the chicken breast and give it an 8 minute poach in salted boiling water. In a large bowl I tossed the poached chicken with the curry powder and then gave it a quick fry in a pan. I added some of the water I used to poach the chicken in and put a lid on the pan to let the chicken steam some more and hoped for the sauce to build up.
To complete the meal I added some steamed vegtables, rice, and a carrot puree that I made by boiling carrots and blending them together with some ground black pepper and olive oil. I really enjoyed my first attempt at making curry chicken and certainly will not shy away from it any more anymore.
Enjoy your time in the kitchen,
