CHICKEN AND PINEAPPLE CURRY
By now most of you might have noticed that I make chicken dishes a lot, well because chicken (chicken breast) is the fastest and most versatile protein anyone can cook in 30 minutes… in a hurry.
At my home, we mostly eat simple meals, and it’s only on weekends that we cook and eat beef in the form of a stew or a braised dish which takes hours to cook.
On this blog, my goal is to post and share recipes that are simple, quick to prepare yet absolutely tasty… simply scrumptious!
There are dozens of curry recipes everywhere, but this curry is simple, straight-forwardly hearty and is packed with every taste sensation there is; salty, savory, sweet (because of the pineapples), spicy and creamy. But what is more truly great about this curry dish is that you just ladle it over a plate/bowl of boiled or steamed rice and EAT! ;)
1 pound chicken breast, sliced into medium size chunks
2 teaspoons yellow curry paste
2 teaspoons coarse salt (not table salt)
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Approx. 1/2 cup Reserved pineapple juice from the *canned (500 grams) pineapple chunks
- Marinate chicken with these ingredients for 15 minutes inside the fridge.
4 tablespoons canola oil (for sauteeing)
8 slices of fresh ginger
1 large white onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
*500 grams canned pineapple chunks
3 green finger chilies, sliced (or you can substitute 1 medium size red bell pepper, thinly sliced)
1 heaping tablespoon yellow curry paste (you can substitute 2-3 teaspoons yellow curry powder)
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup thick coconut cream (unsweetened)
1 cup milk
salt (or fish sauce if you like) according to taste.
1. Place a large saute pan over medium high heat and add canola oil.
2. Saute ginger slices followed by the onions, then the garlic.
3. Strain and save the marinade from the chicken pieces. And add the marinated chicken into the saute pan along with the aromatics. Saute chicken until cooked through.
4. Add the pineapple chunks and sliced finger chilies (or sliced red bell pepper) and cook for 3 minutes.
5. Pour the reserved marinade and chicken stock and simmer for 5 minutes.
6. Finally add the coconut cream and milk and gently simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt (or fish sauce) according to taste.
Serve over boiled or steamed rice.
Makes 4-6 servings
