This one-pot sweet potato curry makes dinner prep and cleanup quick and easy.
This one-pot chicken curry makes dinner prep and cleanup quick and easy. With your “mother” tomato sauce prepared ahead (our Super Simple Slow Cooker Sauce), it just takes some pantry spices and a can of coconut milk to take your sauce from spaghetti night to exotic Indian delight.
Most curry dishes pack a big nutritional punch. That’s because turmeric – one of the key ingredients in most curry spice blends – has been shown to have potential anti-cancer and anti-inflammation properties.
Tip: This recipe can easily be made with any leftover vegetables you have in the house. Try bell pepper, broccoli, white potatoes, mushrooms, green beans or bok choy!
Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp of the oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper and sear on both sides until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Return pan to medium heat and add remaining oil. Add onion and sauté until it begins to soften, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, curry, cumin, coriander and cayenne and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Next, add tomato sauce and sweet potatoes. Cover pan and simmer for 7 to 8 minutes, until sweet potatoes begin to soften.
Pour in coconut milk. Nestle chicken and cauliflower into sauce. Cover pan and cook until cauliflower is fork tender and chicken thighs reach an internal temperature of 165° to 175°F, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Remove lid and stir in spinach and peas. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if desired.
Garnish with fresh cilantro and enjoy.
