“I had never made curry before but decided to give it a shot. I would call this recipe a medium-hot dish. I put in quite a bit of curry, but there is a lot of rice and chicken for it to cover. This recipe is for 1 person, but can be easily multiplied. If you use chicken stock for this recipe do not use the chicken base”
2 cups chicken and rice

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve chicken base in hot water (skip this step if using stock).
  2. Pour dissolved base/stock in 2" deep pan.
  3. Add chicken to pan and place on medium-high heat.
  4. Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT rice.
  5. Cook chicken uncovered, stirring often to coat with spices.
  6. Remove chicken from heat and cover to keep warm. You will use the liquid from the pan in the next step.
  7. Add rice to separate pan and prepare as directed, BUT instead of using water to cook, add the drippings from the chicken pan. I usually get about 1/2 cup of drippings and then top that off with the water necessary to cook the rice. The rice I use needs 1 1/3 cup of water for 1/2 cup uncooked rice. This will yield 2 cups of cooked rice.
  8. When rice is finished cooking, spoon rice back into chicken pan and place on medium-high heat for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
