Easy Chicken Curry

Need an easy chicken curry recipe in a hurry? Throw together this yellow chicken curry dish with potato, carrot, and onion for a quick weeknight meal.

Easy Chicken Curry

Evidently, a year ago I had already busted out the eggnog in my baking. I can barely wrap my head around the fact that it is December already let alone bust out the eggnog. Did you know that this time last year I was only 10 days away from graduating with my PhD? I had already defended and passed my dissertation in September but awaited the ceremonial part. Maybe I should plan something special for my 1 year graduation anniversary… more of that later.

Let’s make curry. This recipe is fairly quick and easy, making it a good weeknight meal. Just don’t do what I did and completely forget to add the onions. While eating it I sat there pondering why it didn’t taste quite right, as if something was missing. Oh look there’s the onion I was supposed to chop up and cook in it. And you better believe I cooked up that onion and stirred it in. I have to admit however, that this was not my favorite curry recipe. It was pretty good but I think it would have been better if I had made it with coconut milk. The evaporated milk just didn’t have the depth of flavor I was looking for, so next time I will try coconut milk and have reflected this option in the ingredients.

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed

1 lb. baby red skinned potatoes, quartered

2 carrots, peels and sliced

1 small white onion, sliced

1 Tbsp curry powder

1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used whole milk Chobani)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

2 cups cooked basmati or jasmine rice

Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of oil. Add chicken and cooked until no longer pink. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  2. To the same skillet, add about tablespoon of oil followed by the potatoes, carrots, and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Add curry powder and cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Stir in yogurt and milk and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes, or until starting to thicken. Stir in salt, pepper, and chicken. Serve over rice and garnish with cilantro, if using.

Grilled Steak with Peppers and Potatoes

Start up your grills and get ready for some steak. Paired with sweet bell peppers and red skinned potatoes makes for a great meal to be enjoyed on your patio.

Grilled Steak with Peppers and Potatoes

My mini-road trip adventure continues to Ann Arbor, MI to visit my friend Stephanie who since graduating with me from UTHSC has started a post doc here at UM. She’s trying to convince me to get a job here and manged to get her boss involved! Moving to enemy territory may not be the first thing on my list (if you don’t know college football rivalries just ignore me), but what she is working on it really cool and I would not turn down a job if they found one for me. We shall see how serious they truly are.

If you haven’t started up your grill yet this season now is the time. Whip up this steak with peppers and potatoes and enjoy it on your patio because it’s finally nice out for spring/summer. While the steak grills, you saute the bell peppers and onions. Although next time I want to wrap up the onion, peppers, and seasonings in a foul packet to be cooked on the grill. I found myself running in and out of the house to check on the steak because I am not a grill-master and was unsure how long the steak needed to cook. Thankfully the oven and grill are not terribly far apart haha.

Potato Burger Buns

Soft potato buns are one of my favorite buns for burgers. These potato burger buns are made from real potatoes and are perfect for all the burgers on the grill this season.

Potato Burger Buns 1

In case you hadn’t noticed I am preparing you for Memorial weekend this week with all kinds of recipes which I think would be a hit with your family and friends. I’ve already given you the recipe to my favorite potato salad which is an excellent side dish for your burger, but what about the buns? I must have had potato on the brain because I also made potato burger buns. These smell amazing while baking and rising. Anyone who walked through the door during or even afterwards commented on how it smelled like delicious bread – and they were right. My favorite part was that this recipe uses fresh potato instead of the dried boxed stuff, which kind of creeps me out.

Looking for burger recipes? Try these on for size:

Here are some other homemade burger buns while I am at it. Try these Wheat-Oat-Flax Buns or Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns for healthier alternatives, or my all-time favorite, Bretzel Rolls (aka pretzel buns).

Deviled Potatoes

Deviled potatoes are exactly what they sound like, potatoes with a deviled filling, and they are just as addicting as the classic deviled egg and potato skin appetizers. 

Deviled Potatoes 2

Everyone loves deviled eggs – the creamy, tangy filling wins every time. But who’s to say that it can only be transported to your belly in the vehicle of a hard boiled egg white? I introduce to you, deviled potatoes. These potatoes are a combination of potato skins and deviled eggs. Roasted potatoes have their middles scooped out like potato skin or a yolk of a hard boiled egg which gets mashed up with all the usual suspects found in a deviled egg: mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, and paprika. Top them off with crumbled bacon and then devour.

You might want to double the recipe if this is the only appetizer and you are serving more than 5 people, because that’s all it took for these tasty morsels to disappear.
