Who thinks chicken breast is healthy, but dry and boring? That's not always the case!
Try our Chicken Curry made from scratch!
• 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
• 3/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
• 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tsp + 1 1/2 tsp curry powder
• 1 tbsp + 1 tbsp vegetable oil
• 1 medium yellow onion (finely chopped)
• 4 garlic cloves (minced)
• 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
• 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
• 1 tbsp cornstarch
• 2 tsp sugar
• 1/4 cup plain low fat (2%) Greek yogurt (do not use nonfat)
• 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1. Cut the chicken into 1/4-inch strips. Sprinkle the chicken pieces evenly with 3/4 tsp salt, freshly ground black pepper and 1 tsp curry powder.
2. Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat until just smoking. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but still pink in spots (~3 minutes). Transfer the partially cooked chicken to a clean bowl and set aside.
3. Add 1 tbsp vegetable oil to the skillet and set heat to medium. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened (~5 minutes). Stir in the minced garlic, grated fresh ginger, and the remaining 1 1/2 tsp curry powder. Cook until fragrant (~1 minute more).
4. Whisk the low sodium chicken broth and cornstarch together to dissolve the cornstarch. Then add to the skillet along with sugar and 1/8 tsp salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and cook until the sauce is nicely thickened (~5 minutes).
5. Add the partially cooked chicken to the skillet, turn the heat down to low and simmer until the chicken is fully cooked. Take the skillet off the heat and stir in Greek yogurt and chopped fresh cilantro. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
6. You can serve the curry with basmati rice, brown rice, or cauliflower rice.
Cauliflower has been gaining popularity as a lower-calorie alternative for starchy foods like rice, pizza crust, and mashed potatoes. You can get cauliflower rice at many grocer stores (either in the produce or frozen food section). It goes well with saucy dishes like curry so if you’re watching out for your weight, definitely try some cauliflower rice with our curry!
