If you’ve never tried curry, this dish is a delectable imitation. When purchasing your curry powder be sure to read the labels as there are numerous types that pack varying degrees of heat. I recently  changed brands of curry powder without checking the labels and was quite surprised how much stronger my new curry powder was! This Curried Chicken is a perfect mid-week dinner. It takes very little time to prepare this curried chicken and it comes together quickly. If you have leftovers you can spoon the cold chicken mixture onto crisp lettuce leaves for a cool and tasty curried chicken salad lunch.Curried Chicken

Looks delicious and certainly be something different for me to prepare.
Would you believe that I have never tasted a mango let alone mango chutney. Have no idea what they taste like.

Mango Chutney is wonderful, you can pour it over cream cheese for a delicious appetizer! 🙂

This looks like a wonderful dish! My youngest son had a class in college a couple of years ago called something like “Cultural Food”, as part of his anthropology minor. He had to prepare four dishes during the semester from four different cultures. I helped him make Samosas for the “Indian Food” chapter, and we used chutney (to dip the samosa in) and curry, ginger and garam masala – which was a first for me. It was good! I didn’t know I like Indian Food, and have begun to be a bit more adventurous with my cooking because of this. Thank you for your recipe of curried chicken!

Isn’t it fun to try new food, when I was in high school my mom took a Chinese cooking class and I’ve loved Chinese cooking ever since. Since then I’ve tried so many other cuisines! Such fun! 🙂
