Weeknight Chicken Curry.

d1ca7347-1629-4f49-b053-8a4ca8c71485I’m a meat and potatoes kind of girl, and that’s exactly how I feel about food blogging. I’m here to give you the good stuff, & I’m here to give it to you quickly.

Weeknight meals are essential for budget and nutritional survival, am I right? I know what it’s like to come home after a truly exhausting day and want to reach for the phone for takeout, but if you have a few 30 minute meals in your toolbox, you’re more likely to hit the jackpot with a delicious & healthy dinner in 30 minutes or less, less time than it takes for Uber Eats to arrive, no matter how quickly they promise they can get to you, trust me, I know this for a fact. (hello 90 minute delivery time on sushi on Saturday! YIKES).

I used a premixed spice blend in this recipe from Frontier Co-OP, but I’ll list the measurements of each spice to use that I think would be equally as perfect- I only recommend the pre-mixed blend because it’s cost effective instead of buying a bunch of random spices, but if you have a good assortment of dried spices in your cabinet, you’ll be A-OK! Serve this bowl of comfort over rice, cauli rice, pita, or whatever your heart desires. Feel free to sub tofu for chicken, or paneer or bread cheese work deliciously, as well. Let’s dig in.

Weeknight Chicken Curry
Serves 4
Ingredients
2 lbs chicken breast
1 T olive oil
1-2 tsp chili garlic paste (optional if you like it spicy)
2-3 Tablespoons Vindaloo Curry Spice from Frontier Co-Op
OR
Mix 1 heaping tsp of each– ground cumin, ground cinnamon, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, ground ginger, ground turmeric
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 tsp fresh garlic, minced
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 15oz  can lite coconut milk
red onion & cilantro for topping

Directions.
1. Cube chicken breast and toss in olive oil, chili garlic paste, garlic, ginger, & HALF the spice mixture. Sauté in large skillet over medium-high heat, until chicken is seared on both sides.
2. While chicken is cooking, combine coconut milk, tomato sauce, and the remaining spice mixture. Pour over chicken, stirring to combine, and turn heat to low. Cover dish and let simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Serve with rice, cauliflower rice, and naan bread for dunking! I love to sprinkle fresh red onion and cilantro on top of mine, and a scoop of greek yogurt is great, if you have it! Enjoy.
