Easy Chicken Korma

September 12, 2010

Indian food is one of my favorite cuisines, but it can be a bit of a challenge to get my young children to enjoy it as much as I do. Depending on the recipe, cooking Indian food from scratch can be a time investment.    That’s where jarred sauces come in.

I gave this mild coconut Korma sauce a try – Seeds of Change Korma sauce.  It’s delicious and easy, and organic to boot.

I served this quick dinner with Deep brand Naan which was easy to heat up in the oven – it takes about 2 minutes.  Naan is Indian flat bread which comes in many varieties (we have plain and garlic in the freezer). Garden cucumbers are and easy vegetable to serve on the side. Additionally you can serve with rice.  Did know you can freeze rice and thaw in the microwave for later? It’s apparent how quick this Indian dinner really is!

Easy Chicken Korma

  • 1 lb (or so) chicken breast, cut up (preferably free-range or organic)
  • small amount of olive oil
  • 1 jar Seeds of Change Korma sauce

Directions

  1. Sautee the cut up chicken in olive oil; sautee until cooked well.
  2. Add jarred Korma sauce
  3. Simmer for 10 minutes
  4. Serve with veggies, rice, and/or naan.

Our family weighs in:

  • Husband and I loved it
  • Son cried a bit at first, then he got used to the sauce.
  • Daughter had a harder time with the flavor – said it was OK

The book “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” has a whole chapter on quick curries which look delicious.  I’m looking forward to trying these!

    I’ve made lots of those Indian recipes from that Revolution cookbook and we’ve liked them all! I found the curry pastes he recommends at our local Indian grocery, as well as great prices on groceries.

      Hi Ellen – that’s great to know you’ve enjoyed Jamie’s curries. I can’t wait! But I need to let a little time pass so the kids don’t revolt. 🙂

    Another option is to swap the chickpeas and cauliflower for the chicken. Just as good!
