Transcript:How to Make Curry ChickenHi, I'm Jen D'Amore for About.com, and this video is all about how to make curry chicken using a recipe from About.com's Chinese Food site.
Ingredients Needed for Curry Chicken:3/4 - 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 potatoes, peeled, chopped into chunks
1 red onion, peeled and chopped
10 baby carrots, washed, drained, cut in half
2 tablespoons oil for stir-frying
2 tablespoons curry paste or powder
1 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Freshly ground black or white pepper, to taste
Ground coriander, optional
Cut the chicken into chunks, about 1 1/2 inches. Remember to use safe practices for handling raw meat. Use a nonporous cutting or prepping surface wash your hands immediately after coming into contact with raw meat before touching anything else. And sanitize every surface and tool that may have come into contact with the raw meat.
Stir Fry Ingredients with Curry PasteHeat a wok or deep-sided frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of oil and when the oil is hot, add the onion. Stir-fry until the onion is softened and translucent. Then add the curry paste and stir-fry until fragrant. If you're using curry powder instead, add a small amount of water to form a paste first. Add the chicken and stir-fry for about 5 minutes so that the chicken is browned and coated with the curry paste. Add the carrots and the potatoes. If you'd like you could also add other chopped vegetables, like red peppers. Or make it soupy by adding coconut milk. Stir for a minute and add the chicken broth, sugar, salt, and pepper. Cover and simmer over low heat for about 15 - 20 minutes, making sure the chicken is cooked.If you'd like adjust the seasoning or sprinkle some ground coriander over top. Serve plain or over rice or noodles.
