Curry In A Hurry!

You want to give your kids some diversity in flavor but you don’t have time for a long drawn out cook-a-thon to make sure you offer authenticity.  Here is something I made for my mini-me’s – I call it Curry In a Hurry!

June’s Curry in a Hurry


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves, skinned
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 2 potatoes (diced)
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 14 1/2-ounce can chicken broth


Melt butter with oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and brown on both sides for about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and add onion and garlic to skillet and sauté until translucent for about 6 minutes. Stir in curry powder and return the chicken to the skillet along with diced potatoes, apricots and raisins. Add enough broth & coconut milk to just cover mixture. Season with salt & pepper. Cover and simmer until chicken is just cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to platter. Keep warm. Continue simmering fruit mixture until fruit is tender and sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Spoon over chicken and serve with rice and enjoy!

    This sounds all too good to be true. I think someone needs to find a location for a cooking-wine class. I know you don’t drink june. But, some of us stressed out professionals need the wine + cooking. Great money and social event for you!(food for thought)
