Curry-er Service

21 Feb

I love this cookbook:

Real Simple - Really Awesome

This book has simply constructed recipes with serious flavor.

Usually, I reserve things like curry dishes to restaurants – the professionals.

Though, Real Simple tempted me with such a simple yellow curry dish that I couldn’t resist giving it a whirl.

It turned out pretty well, and made me feel pretty culturally bad-ass.

Yellow Chicken Curry, c/o Real Simple


1 C white rice

1 1/2 TBSP olive oil

1 small yellow onion, chopped

1 bell pepper, chopped

2 tsp curry powder

1/2 C plain yogurt

Salt & Pepper

1 C lowfat milk (using non-fat will prevent the curry sauce from thickening up correctly)

1 large chopped tomatoes

Shredded rotisserie chicken (1/2 the chicken)

1/4 C shredded fresh cilantro (this is worth the purchase and is more affordable than other herbs and garnishes)


Prepare your rice according to instructions on the package.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium/low heat. Saute onions and bell peppers until softened.Add curry powder, salt and pepper. Cook for another minute or two.

Add yogurt and milk. Turn down to a simmer and cook until thickened, 10-12 minutes.

Add chicken and tomatoes. Heat through.

Serve over rice and top with cilantro. Enjoy!

    Ok, seriously Erin, how do you have time to do all the crafting that you do, work, eat, sleep, play with kitties, make lovely valenites, and cook a fabulous dinner?? You are like super woman! Lately I’ve been feeding Curt soup and salad for dinner. Soup out of a can and lettuce out of a bag. Steve is a lucky man!
