Curry Chicken:

      This curry chicken is slightly spicy, fork tender, and makes a delicious gravy. The perfect comfort food served over rice with a splash of lime juice! I hope you get a chance to taste this lovely dish by following my recipe and making your own curry chicken at home!

-6 chicken legs (use chicken breast or thighs if you prefer)
-Salt and pepper to taste
-2 tablespoons of butter
-2 tablespoons of canola oil
-4 garlic cloves, minced
-1 hot pepper, minced
-2 cups water
-1 cup sour cream
-2 tablespoons of cornstarch
-2 tablespoons of MDH curry masala for chicken 
-hot sauce (add as much or as little as you would like)

Let's get started:
1: On a surface lined with parchment paper, salt and pepper all sides of the chicken:

2:On medium high heat in a large pot (yes pot, not pan!) fry the chicken in half of the butter and all of the canola oil. 

3: Using tongs, flip the chicken over after 
ten minutes of cooking on each side:

4: When the chicken is almost done cooking, add the remaining butter and saute the garlic and spicy pepper.

5: Add the water, sour cream, cornstarch, 
and curry masala into the pot:

6: Add salt and pepper to taste:

7: Bring the pot to a boil and then turn on low and let simmer for 15 minutes. Make sure to cover the pot with a lid! (I liked how my image showed up on the lid)

8: Plate and serve! I enjoy this recipe with basmati rice or quinoa, a bit of lime juice and extra hot sauce. Cilantro would also add a fresh touch!


PS, store any leftovers in their own gravy and reheat in a pot vs a microwave, I promise that stove top reheating makes a difference in taste!


  1. that looks really good! I have been looking for a curry chicken recipe...I think we are gonna try this sometime this week!

  2. its super yum! when I see you, remind me and I can give you some of the spices I used! This really is one of those recipes that you can change and alter to fit what your taste preferences are. Want more sour cream? just add it. too spicy for you, reduce the amount of hot sauce. Just keep tasting and adding ingredients until its perfect

  3. This looks delicious...sadly Nico...I don't know how to cook to save my life... Fabulous that you had a love hate relationship with my jeans today lol! Actually what I didn't say was that these jeans are close to my hear because when 7 for all mankind launched these they called it the "great wall of china." Being Chinese (from Taiwan), and my heritage being infused with street fashion..I thought it was awesome! LOL! I'm excited to see your beautiful black suede moto chic sounds amazing and the deal is even better :)

  4. That looks so yummy! I don't really cook, mainly because my mom likes to kick me out of "HER KITCHEN". But I shall suggest this dish to her :D
