Curried Chicken Thighs

I hope you love curry as much as I do! I usually make my Jamaican Curry Chicken, was I was finally ready to try a different recipe, this one being from the Food Network Kitchen. It’s more Indian as opposed to Jamaican, even though I wouldn’t assign to any particular country. I changed the recipe just a tad, and it’s immensely delicious, and very simple to prepare!


What you’ll need:

  • 8 chicken thighs with or without bones/skin
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large skillet and stir in butter to melt. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook the chicken thighs skin side down until they are nice and brown. Turn the chicken over, and cook the other side until golden brown. Remove chicken and save on a plate.

Stir in onions and cook until soft. Add curry, cayenne, cinnamon and cumin.

Stir in carrots and toss to coat. Add chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Add the broccoli and bring to a simmer.

Place the chicken thighs back in the pan. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes (about 5 minutes longer with chicken that has bone in). Remove chicken and place in a serving bowl. Add sour cream and whisk. Pour liquid and vegetables over the chicken. Serve with Basmati rice.


Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
