Super savory, this chicken curry recipe is a terrific choice for a nice night in, or for your next dinner party! The chicken is tender, and the curry sauce is nice and creamy. The raisins add a touch of sweetness to each nite. This dish is filled with aromatic curry flavor.

  • 2 Tbsp
  • 1 tsp

How To Make mom's chicken curry

  • Cooked chicken, onion, garlic, bay leaves, and apple in a skillet.
    Add Lawry's garlic salt and pepper to the diced chicken. Brown in butter. When fully cooked add finely chopped onion, garlic, bay leaves, and finely chopped peeled apple.
  • Flour, paprika, curry, and water added to the skillet.
    When onions are cooked, add flour and let the flour coat everything. Add curry, paprika, and water.
  • Raisins and a bouillon cube added to the skillet.
    When the sauce is thick enough, add raisins and bouillon cube. Let it cook on medium low or simmer for a while so that apples dissipate in the sauce.
  • Pouring in heavy cream.
    At the end add heavy cream. If you decide to use coconut milk, you may want to cook it longer so some of the liquid evaporates to a thicker consistency or use less coconut milk than the full can.
  • Mom's Chicken Curry over jasmine rice.
    Serve with rice, peaches in their syrup, and a fine chutney.
