[curry chicken]

wayell, it's been a while, i confess. and so here i am once again to share one of my all-time favorite recipe of curry chicken. what i like about this recipe is that it's really easy to do and it's fairly quick - probably 25 minutes start to finish. i usually serve it with rice or pasta, with veggies on side (if you want to get creative).

i usually cook for me and one more person (most often me mum), so i buy about 3 chicken filet breasts. try making it once and then you'll easily will figure out how much of stuff you need for more (or less) people.

you'll also need a packet of sour cream (i buy 20% fat or 15% at least - otherwise the sause will be like drinking kind of yogurt - no fun) - that is about 2 cups; curry seasoning, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and whatever else your heart desires (i love to experiment with spices - and my dishes rarely turn out bad - when i do cook, that is). you'll need some butter - not much, probably about 1/8 of a cup.

wash (yes, i wash the meat before cooking it) and cut the meat into little pieces, 1 inch by 1 inch. the pot should be already on the stove heating with the butter melting in it. put the cut-up chicken in the pot and let it turn white. mix it, so all sides of the chicken pieces get their share of frying.

once the chicken is sort of all white, add salt, spices, and all sour cream. mix well, so that the spices are dispensed equally in the sour cream and on chicken.

once it starts to boil, turn the heat on low, and let it stew (so the chicken gets thoroughly done).

while it's being cooked, you have time to prepare rice or macaroni, or have a cup of joe while waiting.

when the tantalizing smell spreads all around the kitchen, that's the hint that the chicken is done and you're about to taste something very good.

in case you try this, please let me know how you liked this recipe and if you have any comments / compliments / questions / whatever :-)
