Easy Chicken Curry

easy chicken curry

We are always trying to eat better. That means more meals at home. This recipe was a hit.

1 rotisserie chicken -  I like rotisserie chicken because someone else cooked it. Just shred it.
2 T butter
4 green onions, chopped
3 T curry powder - Sounds like a lot, but yes you do need 3 T.
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup chicken stock
1 can of pineapple tidbits, plus the juice
3 T crystallized ginger - I chopped it in my new NINGA food processor that I love. (No one paid me to say that.)
Ground red pepper, to taste
4 T raisins
1/4 cup lime juice
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Trader Joe's brown rice. I get the box with 3 packs of rice in it. It is in the freezer section. Just microwave for 3 minutes.

Shred chicken, set aside.

Heat butter in sauce pan. Add onions and saute 2-3 minutes. Stir in curry powder. Gradually add the coconut milk, chicken stock and juice from the pineapple.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add the ginger and red pepper. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Add chicken, simmer for 15 minutes.

Add raisins, pineapple, lime juice and cream. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Serve over rice. Enjoy.

Why I consider this easy is the substitution of rotisserie chicken vs. poaching chicken. Plus the tasty, easy microwavable rice.

Jack & Ella Paper

Jessica from Jack & Ella Paper uses my fonts so well that every time I walk into Hatch Art House in our neighborhood, I have a moment where think I did them. And that always makes me smile.

Jessica has several new lines of cards. So much to choose from. I am my mother's daughter and like to have a stash of cards in the house. I've just ordered a quantity of birthday and sympathy cards for people and pets. I think the pet ones are perfect.

You can also buy Jack & Ella cards in Jessica's etsy shop. If you are in the neighborhood Hatch Art House is at 1248 Williamson St, Madison. And not to be missed is Hazel next door.
