Chicken Curry is a sponsored post on behalf of World Kitchen, however opinions expressed are 100% my own.
This Chicken curry recipe is an easy, stovetop version of the classic Indian dish, but with Thai characteristics. For this rich and hearty meal, I use coconut milk, basil, cilantro, jalapenos, corn and lime juice, for a sweet sauce with just a little bit of heat.
Curried chicken seems to be a recipe that many are intimidated to make at home. The honest truth is that chicken curry can be challenging if you make your curry from scratch (highly recommended at least once in your life). However, curry sauce can also come together quickly by using pre-made curry and the proper cookware. For this chicken curry recipe, the prep work takes more time than the actual cooking, but believe me, it is worth it for this aromatic masterpiece.
Whether you are preparing chicken curry or a frittata, proper cookware is essential for any home chef. Materials make all the difference in your ability to cook evenly and effectively. You also want to make sure your cookware does not rust or pit and is budget friendly. The two ideal materials for cookware are stainless steel and copper. Stainless steel will outlive your grandchildren and is a workhorse in the kitchen, but does not distribute heat evenly or rapidly. Copper is the creme de la creme of cookware, conducting heat evenly and fast, but is expensive and fairly heavy. Revere® has come up with the best of both worlds: a stainless steel body with copper base at an attractive price point. The ideal cookware!
Chicken curry was the maiden dish in my new Revere® Copper Confidence Core™ cookware and I couldn’t be more pleased with both! I was able to easily sear chicken breasts, deglaze and simmer an aromatic curry sauce using only one pan. The handle is cool touch, so I didn’t need to worry about burning myself when I forgot the dish towel (I’m embarrassed at how many times I have done this). Clean up was a cinch, seeing that Revere® is dishwasher safe and chicken curry was a one dish meal! Are you drooling yet?
Chicken curry can be served with Whole Wheat Flatbread or Cilantro Lime Rice and can easily be made ahead to freeze. There is one thing I can promise you, Revere® Copper Confidence Core™ cookware and easy Chicken Curry will both be new favorites in your kitchen. And when you are through making your delicious dinner, save space with the groundbreaking Nest&Protect™ interlocking handles that elevate your pots and pans when nested, seemingly floating above each other, protecting the interior and exterior finish, and store conveniently without scratching.

- 2 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
- Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup red onion chopped
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 jalapeno stem and seeds removed, cut into circles
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated
- 2 teaspoons yellow curry powder
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 14.5 ounces light coconut milk
- 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 1/4 cup basil cut into strips

Season chicken breasts with fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Heat extra virgin olive oil in a medium Revere® skillet over medium heat. Add seasoned chicken breasts, searing on both sides. Approximately 4 minutes each, however depending on size, times can vary.
When browned, remove chicken breasts from pan and set aside. Add red onion, garlic and jalapeno, sauteing for 1 minute.
Add lime juice and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Allow mix to soften, coming to a sofrito consistency, approximately 3 minutes.
Add ginger, yellow curry powder and cornstarch. The mixture will be dry and pasty, allow to brown for 1 minute or until the curry becomes fragrant.
Add light coconut milk and cilantro, stirring to combine. Bring to a low simmer.
Place chicken breasts back into the sauce, adding corn and basil. Spoon sauce over chicken. Simmer on low for 5 minutes, turning chicken half way.
Serve with Cilantro-Lime Coconut Rice or Whole Wheat Flatbreads. Season with Maldon sea salt.
For additional heat, leave a few jalapeno seeds in or use 2 jalapenos. For less heat, leave it out all together.
