Chicken leg/thigh quarters (that's always been our favorite)
1 medium onion chopped
2 large carrots, cut in rounds or diced
1/3 cup butter
1 TBS curry powder, or to taste (I usually use about 3 TBS) - the curry powder I use is not hot - so it's just flavor!
3 cups boiling water
2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup flour

Brown onion and carrots in butter in large skillet. Remove veggies and then brown chicken. Replace the onion, add curry powder and stir. Pour the boiling water over the mixture in skillet then salt. Cover, simmer until chicken is tender, usually about 30 minutes.

Next, mix the flour with 1/4 cup of the hot chicken liquid. BE VERY CAREFUL HERE! You can stir this mixture together or put in a larger than normal container and shake. Mixing a hot liquid like this will cause the lid to pop off if you are not careful. Stir with fork if unsure.

Pour this mixture back into skillet and cook for an additional 5 or so minutes to cook out the flour taste.

Serve over rice. You can cook the rice with a cinnamon stick and some cloves for a "spiced" rice. Even golden raisins can be added to the rice at the end too.

Now, there are additions from here:

fresh cilantro
coconut milk instead of water
addition of pineapple chunks
chopped tomatoes

Just know that the basic recipe is good as is and very budget friendly!
Thanks, I made this last night. My kind of recipe easy and good. I did add a couple of potatos and I think I will cut down on the water next time, a little runny for me and I will add more onion but great overall! Thanks

Hi all,

When I was a kid, we lived in Africa and ate a lot of curry. With the help of some of the British women there, my mom came up with this recipe for chicken curry that our family has always loved. It's a little more work, but has many flavor layers and your kitchen will smell heavenly!

Chicken Curry (Serves 8)

4 whole bone-in chicken breasts (about 3.25 lbs) split
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 can (13.75 oz) chicken broth


3 TB. Butter or margarine
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 cup chopped onion
2-3 teaspoons curry powder (your choice medium to hot)
1 cup chopped pared apple
1/4 cup unsifted all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. ground cardamom (don't leave this out!)
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tsp. grated lime peel
2 TB. lime juice
1/4 c. Major Gray mango chutney, chopped

Skin the chicken and wipe dry. Brown chicken, a few pieces at a time, in 1/4 cup hot butter,
about 5 minutes each side.

Return all chicken to the skillet, add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat
and simmer, covered for 20 minutes, or until tender.

Remove chicken pieces and keep warm. Measure the liquid in the skillet, add water to
make 3 cups and set aside.

Make the sauce. Put the 3 TB. butter in the skillet and heat. Add garlic, onion, curry powder and apple
and saute until onion is tender.

Remove from heat and stir in flour, cardamom, ginger, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Gradually stir in reserved liquid, lime peel and lime juice.

Bring to a boil, stirring. Reduce heat and simmer covered for about 20 minutes,
stirring once in a while.

Add back the cooked chicken and chutney and heat just to boiling.

Serve with Basmati or saffron rice and curry accompaniments.

Curry Accompaniments
to set on the
table for sprinkling on the chicken dish. They add
a lot of different and interesting flavors to the curry.

Chopped bananas, dipped in lemon juice
Chutney, any kind or several kinds
Whole salted peanuts
Flaked Coconut
Sliced Green onions
chopped cucumber
Chopped tomatoes
Pineapple chunks

Hi GrantsKat,

The best site that you could access for authentic, tried and tested recipes for a wide variety of different chicken curries (there is no one chicken curry recipe (!) etc ., is:

Hope this helps,
