MrldCtyGrl Peanut Butter Curried Chicken Dinner

Submitted by: MRLDCTYGRL

Introduction

A couple of people have had problems reproducing this, so here's my disclaimer... we love it, I invented it, it's been served to pro chefs and folks from India, and they've all liked it. However, the reviews are not all positive, and maybe there's something off about the preparation. I don't know. But please, if you MUST review, be gentle. I've got them shared so my family can add their portions to their menus. Everyone else's opinion is totally optional.

Chicken, Chickpeas, Mushrooms, Onions, Broccoli, Spinach and Cashews all in a fabulous creamy mellow curry sauce served over basmati rice (nutr. info includes the ENTIRE dish, vegs and rice included)

Directions

Start rice cooking first, according to package directions to make 4.5 cups of Basmati rice. (6 3/4 cup servings)

In large non-stick pot, heat oil and 1 T curry powder to toast the spice for 30 secs over med-high heat. Add chicken, onion, mushrooms, chickpeas and garlic and toss to sweat in the toasted spice until onions start to become cloudy and chicken is begun to cook through. Add remaining curry powder and stir throughout until evenly coated.

Add remaining ingredients in any order, finishing with black pepper, turn heat to med-low and simmer, stirring occasionally about 5 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. At the last second before serving, stir in lime juice (DON'T do this early, it makes the dairy CURDLE).

Plate 3/4 cup of rice in the center of each plate, pour 1/6th of curry mixture over it and dig in!

If it's too spicy, sprinkle a packet of splenda over the top.
Not spicy enough? Add some sriracha suce (sparingly!) and salt,

Serves 6.

    I think this sounds delish! I might cut back a little on the black pepper, initially, and add more at the table...TY! - 9/1/11

  • I was extremely disappointed in this recipe. It all sounded so yummy, but the taste was nasty. Threw all leftovers away. - 11/2/10

    Sorry that was your experience, someone else had problems with it too. I'm putting a disclaimer on it. I'm not sure where the problem lies, but clearly something somewhere is wrong with the recipe. Thanks for using such gentle language about it though. I love how the internet keeps us polite.

  • I'm giving this three stars because my fiance said he liked it but I almost gave it two. If I made this again I would leave out the sour cream, mayonnaise and mustard. I might add more yogurt. As it was the final product was un-appetizing looking brownish goo. I want my food to look delicious. - 10/20/10

    I've never had this turn out "brownish", but the curry powder I use is pretty bright yellow. Maybe it got over-heated during the original "toasting"? At any rate, sorry it didn't turn out for you as expected, thanks for trying it out, and for your feedback!
