Easy Chicken Recipes – Curry Chicken & Rice

curry chicken and rice

Curry chicken and rice is the most requested meal in our house. Monkey Boy would eat it every night of the week if he could. Not only is this meal super easy to make, but the house smells like a gourmet restaurant every time it’s simmering on the stove.

This one’s a keeper!


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
5 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons curry powder
1 ½ teaspoons ginger
1 ½ teaspoons salt
½ cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
4 cups chicken broth

In a heavy pan saute onions in olive oil until translucent over medium heat. Add chicken broth, honey, and soy sauce, to the pan and stir. Slowly whisk in flour, curry, ginger, and salt until there are no lumps. Add cooked chicken. Reduce heat, and let simmer for 30 – 45 minutes until all the flavors are combined and the sauce has reduced a bit. Serve over a bed of warm rice.

    Try honey, mustard, and curry over chicken. To die for! I’m not a measurer just eyeball it but maybe 1/2-1C honey, 1/4-1/3C mustard, a tbsp of butter, and curry to taste perhaps a few tspn or a 1/2 Tbsp. cook over chicken any way you want to (crock pot, baked, or marinade and grill)

    We throw sweet bell peppers in with our chicken and instead of honey we use homemade apple sauce. I like to add a little cumin too and a dallop of sour cream is tasty.

    Thanks. I use to buy the curry sauce in a jar. I add carrots and red bell peppers like my fav. Thai place does. I also add a bit of sour cream.

    Thanks so much for the recipe! This will be great with the frozen shredded Turkey that I still have from the holidays!

    Dumb question, probably…but when you call for ginger, do you mean ground ginger (the spice) or ginger root? Since you put it in the same spot as the dry ingredients, it’s probably ground ginger powder, but I’m not sure…

    Do you have a favorite curry powder? I know different brands taste very different from one another! I have a roasted chicken that would be just perfect to curry-up tomorrow. :)
