In a Hurry Chicken Curry

Happy Hump Day.  I feel thoroughly humped, and not in a good way.  This week has worn me out.

Sorry I said hump twice in the first two sentences. That may have been aggressive.  But the point is, I don’t have any time for bull today.

I am exhausted, have way too much going on, and need a dinner I can make with my eyes closed.  I know you feel this way too, because I can’t be the only one.  I know I have an army of tired sisters behind me, they email me “Amen’s” all the dag time.

They say “my husband had the nerve to walk in and ask me what was for dinner.  Uh, did he not see that my sweatpants were already on and my wine was poured? Dude. Take out is for dinner. Obviously.”

They say “So, I left the house before he did, got home after he did, and he just stood there in the kitchen looking at me like it was November 26th and I put the Christmas tree up. All well, what do you have to say for yourself?

You know what I have to say for you?  Cut holes in his t-shirts. Or make this In a Hurry Chicken Curry.  Same impact, I’m sure…


Chicken Curry

Chicken Curry



Mix together the spices and set aside.  In a food processor, combine the chili, onion, and garlic until it makes a paste. Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper, and sear in a dutch oven with olive oil on all sides until almost cooked through.  Remove from the dutch and add the onion paste.  Cook for 2 minutes, then add the spice mix.  Cook for another minute, then add the chicken. In the food processor, puree the coconut milk, ginger, and the tomatoes (no need to rinse it out prior, it's all going in the same place).  Add the coconut mixture to the chicken and onion mixture.  Stir well to combine, cover, and place in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Serve with rice and garlic naan.
