Indian Spiced Chicken

8:10 AM


Have you heard of www.finecooking.com?  This website contains millions of gourmet recipes that aren’t too complicated.  I found one for Chicken Vindaloo and adapted it a tiny bit.  This dish goes perfectly with a side of rice, palak paneer and artisan bread.  I forgot the naan at the store and didn’t have time to make my own.  We had plenty of leftovers, which was wonderful.  The spices had more time to saturate the chicken.  Yum, I could eat this over and over and over again.  Cut back on the spice if you prefer less heat.
What You Will Need:

1 ¼ lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces (Scissors do the job quickly!)
1 yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 T fresh ginger, grated
6-8 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 ½ T curry powder
2 tsp sweet paprika
4 T red wine vinegar
1 T olive oil
1 (14 oz) can petit diced tomatoes, juices reserved
Cilantro for garnish
Small bowl
Medium ceramic bowl
Large skillet
Aluminum foil
Salt and pepper
1)      Mix curry powder, paprika and ½ tsp black pepper in small bowl.

2)      Place chicken in medium bowl.  Coat chicken in ½ curry mixture, ½ garlic and 2 T vinegar.  Set aside.

3)      Heat olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onions and sprinkle of salt.  Cook until tender.

4)      Add ginger, garlic, and curry mixture to onions.  Stir to coat.

5)      Pour in tomatoes and stir. 
6)      Add chicken, tomato juice, 2 T vinegar and 2/3 C water.  Bring to boil and cover loosely with foil.

7)      Reduce to simmer and cook for 20 minutes or until cooked through.

8)      Serve with palak paneer, rice and bread.
