Both South Carolina and Georgia lay claim to this classic Southern chicken dish, which may have been brought to America by a ship's captain ferrying spices from the Far East. Rice is a traditional side dish. To make it fast, cook 1 (3 1/2-ounce) bag boil-in-bag rice, omitting salt and fat. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon bottled mango chutney.
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
3/4 cup thinly sliced green bell pepper (about 1 medium)
2 garlic cloves, minced
2/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup dried currants
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme, divided
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with jalapeño, undrained
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
How to Make It
Combine curry powder, salt, and black pepper. Sprinkle chicken with curry mixture.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken mixture to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add broth, currants, 1 tablespoon thyme, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon thyme; cook 1 minute. Sprinkle with almonds.
Very easy to make and tasty. I used red snapper instead of chicken- just cooked the fish in the pan and removed before adding the onion and pepper mixture. I also used dried thyme instead of fresh. I will definitely make this again and would serve it for friends.
OUTSTANDING. Made exactly as stated and throughly enjoyed it - plucking a tbsp of thyme is more time consuming than I thought, but so worth it - the fresh thyme taste came through loudly - terrific week night dish with brown rice
Love it, love it, love it. Would make it every night. Only used 1/2 the onions suggested. Used a couple fresh roma tomatoes and a can of spicy v-8 for the can of toms w/Jalapeno. Was a very mild version - I simply wasn't prepared - but next time I will be adding a bunch of heat.
This recipe was easy and good! My stupid Publix didn't have any diced tomatoes w/jalapenos, so I used a can of diced tomatoes and then chopped up a few pickled jalapenos. I may have put a few more in there than the can would have had, so my dish had a kick (which is great with us!). In any case, very flavorful. I served over basmati. Will definitely make this one again! ( Oh and I misread and bought slivered almonds not sliced almonds, but I really liked the crunch the slivers provided!)
