It Curried the World

Prep Time: 20 Min
Cook Time: 30 min
Serves: Around 4
Difficulty: Meh, just wing it.
Recommended Sides: Rice, Naan (or pita), something sweet for dessert, and Breaking Bad.

2 Chicken breasts
1/2 onion
2 tomatoes
5 cloves garlic
1 green onion
2 cups flour
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp curry

Curry Sauce Ingredients:
1 can coconut milk
1 cup chicken broth
3 tbs curry powder
1-2 tbs cayenne powder (depending on how hot your want it)
3 tbs sriracha sauce
2 1/2 tbs honey
2 tbs paprika
2 tbs tomato sauce (whatever you’ve got)
1 tbs Adobo seasoning
2 tsp pepper
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
2 bay leaves

So this was my first time making Indian(ish) food and it turned out pretty darn decent. I know it’s not authentic by any means, but it is really easy to do and delicious. If your final product isn’t up to snuff, just add more curry powder and hope for the best!

Step 1: Powder of the Gods
Chop up the chicken into little cubes and set aside. Next combine the flour, garlic powder, and the 2 tsp curry into a bowl. Drop the chicken in and cover each cube with the floury mixture. The chicken should be well coated on all sides.

Step 2: Chop and Mix
Chop up the veggies and tomato and set aside. If the garlic gives you a problem and makes you cry, punch it in the roots and carry on. Set aside and mix all the stuff under the “Curry Sauce” section above. It will smell super coconutty, but that seems to cook off for some reason.

Step 3: Timing is Everything
Heat up a generous amount of oil in a pan and gently place the chicken in. Stir continuously. You don’t need to fully cook it, just brown it. Take it off the heat and start cooking the veggies on medium. Let them brown slightly, then add in the chopped tomatoes for about 2 minutes. Next, toss in the curry mixture and put the top on. Cook for about 5 minutes (stirring occasionally), then add the chicken. Cook for another 5 minutes. Fish out the bay leaves if you can…

Step 4: Is It Hot Enough?
By the power of Grayskull, it should be hot enough. If not just add more cayenne powder, pepper, and curry powder. If it’s still not hot enough, toss in a few chili peppers. Still not enough? Add this pepper. Ps your house might smell like curry for some time… Just run with it! Serve with rice and naan if you can.
