About this recipe: A quick weeknight chicken curry that's made with stuff you probably have in your cupboards already; curry powder, coconut milk, tinned tomatoes and passata.


Serves: 6 

  • 1kg boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil and curry powder in a large frying pan over medium-high heat for two minutes. Stir in onions and garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Add chicken, tossing lightly to coat with curry oil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

Altered ingredient amounts. I used 1 TBS. of garlic, partially drained the tomatoes, added 2 cubed new potatoes and sprinkled in some chilli flakes to make it more spicy. - 27 Aug 2008


Myself and my husband thought that this tasted nice enough,but we both thought that the sauce was 'too' wasn't thick like a curry sauce 'should' be!We were a bit dissapointed! - 24 Oct 2010
