Deliciously Simple Curry Stewed Chicken

I don’t really enjoy the kitchen unless it’s for sweet things, so when it comes to food simple is my way to go… It’s my life policy!!! I learned to make this chicken curry stew with my mom, and I love it. I’m sure you will love it too!!!

My mom is a foodie, she loves cooking and she’s always learning and learning new ways to cook but the one thing that always remains the same is that likes quick and easy meals.

She’s not the kind of person who enjoys spending hours in the kitchen. Just the necessary time, so she has time for the other things she likes to make, like organizing, organizing and let’s see… oh and organizing!… honestly!… But that is beside the point!

Cooking Tips

  • Put the date on your containers so you won’t have to guess later.
  • Curry powder is made by mixing different spices together and can taste anywhere from not very spicy to very spicy. Most labels show if a product is mild, sweet, or hot, so you can choose the one you like the most. Some curry powders cost more than others because they have saffron, which is the most expensive spice in the world.
  • You can add a little bit of plain yogurt or Greek yogurt before serving to balance the spiciness and add creaminess.
  • Allow the stew to rest for a few minutes after cooking. This helps the flavors meld together for a more harmonious taste.
  • If you have leftovers, shred the chicken and use it in wraps, sandwiches, or as a topping for salads.

  • Baked potatoes go perfectly.
  • White rice or basmati rice.
  • Naan bread.

Alternatives and substitutions

If you want a dairy-free version, you can replace the heavy cream with Coconut milk and use vegetable or olive oil instead of butter.

If you don’t like the use of wine in the food, you can just omit it.

Storing and Freezing

Once your chicken curry cools down to the temperature of the room (make sure not to leave it out for more than 2 hours), it is ready to be stored. Divide the curry into air-tight containers – glass is a great option, but BPA-free plastic also works.

If stored in the refrigerator and eat it within 2-3 days. If you wait any longer, it’s a good idea to freeze it. To Reheat it, warm it up on the stove by cooking it slowly on low heat. Remember to stir it every now and then.

You can store it in your freezer for up to 2 months in an air-tight container. To reheat it, thaw it in the fridge overnight. Reheat on the stove as explained above or if you are heating your food in the microwave, take off the lid of the container. Put a paper towel on top so it doesn’t make a mess. Use medium power and heat in intervals of 2 minutes. Stir the food in between each interval to make sure it gets heated evenly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Use Other Chicken Parts?

I personally prefer using chicken breasts without bones or skin because they cook faster and more evenly. But you can also use chicken parts like thighs and legs. If you cook using these pieces, you need to change how long you cook them for and use twice as much seasoning.

How spicy is this curry stew?

You can adjust the heat by adding more or less curry powder. It’s customizable to your preference.

Can I use coconut milk for a creamy twist?

Sure, coconut milk can be a tasty addition or substitution for a creamy curry stew.
