Ah, the dreaded question….”What’s for dinner?” And when you even think you are doing good and have an answer to the question “What’s for dinner?” you get the response, “Oh, that again…” We’ve all been there. The dinner-rut. But, hey, at least there’s dinner on the table!
But, you will be happy to know that we have an easy dinner for you all that is bound to shake up your dinner routine. We are celebrating National Nutrition Month and this year we were so excited to see that the theme is to Celebrate A World Of Flavors. This gave us the opportunity to create Internationally-Inspired recipes that are easy to make, as well as healthy.
In fact, this Easy Chicken Curry recipe is Trish‘s son’s, Matt, personal recipe. He is in his teens, so feel confident that if he can make it, you can too! I, obviously, made it too and I was pleasantly surprised on how much flavor it had for just a few ingredients.
And I am happy to report that my whole family loved it! Which, since it was a dish I have never made before, I was excited. In fact, I think this was the first time my kiddos had curry!
What exactly is curry?
Curry powders are a blend of spices typically used in South Asian and Indian cuisines.
What does curry taste like?
Curry has a unique taste and flavor due to a combination of sweet and savory spices that constitutes its makeup. Curry has a deep earthy flavor due to spices like turmeric which also gives it its color.
Is curry spicy?
No, curry is not typically spicy at all. In the recipe below, I added red pepper flakes because my family likes red pepper flakes in just about everything, but you can leave those out if desired.
Are there different types of curry?
Yes, in fact there are over 100 different types of curry! Some of the most popular types of curries are yellow, green, red, and panang.
What do you serve with curry dishes?
Usually curry dishes are served with rice or Indian bread.
Key Ingredients In Our Easy Chicken Curry Recipe
- Sweet onion, mini peppers and garlic
- Curry Powder
- True Made Foods Veggie Ketchup
- Coconut Milk
- Rice for serving
We actually used rice in a few dishes this week. I love using rice when I am meal-prepping! I typically make a big batch on Sunday using our rice cooker and toss it in the refrigerator and use it through the week. This week we used rice in the Sweet Kale Salad Fried Rice, Greek Chicken Bowls, and of course in this curry recipe.
I also used chicken a few times this week. And I do the same thing! Meal prep! You can buy a rotisserie chicken and use that, feel free to bake a few chicken breasts on Sunday or Monday and use them through the week. You can also make a big batch of shredded chicken. Whatever makes things a bit easier at meal time is a win in my book.
Why True Made Foods? Well, I think you all know that we like creating family-friendly healthy meals here, so using ingredients that have no sugar added are important to us. True Made Foods No Sugar Ketchup is naturally sweetened with apple, butternut squash and carrots. It’s perfect for dipping, dunking, and cooking with. I love that each bottle of True Made Foods Veggie Ketchup contains more than ½ a pound of American-grown fruits and veggies, plus it has iconic ketchup taste you expect at every cookout.
