Indian Chicken Curry

Chicken Curry is an easy breezy dish to make on a weeknight. I picked up some curry powder from Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago because I had received several emails & questions regarding how to use curry powder in lieu of garam masala. I normally don’t use curry powder but I bought it and used it in this dish due to popular request…… I do have to say that I can see using curry powder if you don’t really use a lot of tumeric, mustard, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg & saffron on a daily basis. The chicken curry was quite tasty; I did have to add more cumin powder for more of an “ethnic” taste.

NOTE: there is no red pepper in this recipe because my son does not eat anything spicy. If you want to make it spicy add 1/2 tsp of red chili powder with the onion mixture OR you can serve with achar, chutney or hot sauce.

NOTE: If you are cooking this to warm up later in the week–> Completely cook according to directions, let cool & store in a glass container that you can easily put in the microwave when you are ready to eat it. Chicken Curry re-heats really well!
