EQUIPMENT

INGREDIENTS

Olive Oil – To cook the chicken and veggies you will need oil. If you are out of olive oil don’t panic, just swap this oil for your favorite alternative cold-press oil.

Onion – Onion is the workhorse of the kitchen. It brings savory flavor to practically every great protein dish imaginable. Yellow or white onions are just right for this dish.

Eggplant – Colorful eggplant brings wonderful texture and flavor to this chicken. Eggplants are an excellent source of low-calorie fiber in addition to an awesome taste enhancer!

Zucchini – Fresh zucchini has an irresistible color and flavor especially when fried or roasted. That is why it’s just the thing to add some color and earth veggie flavor to this meal.

Red Bell Pepper – Bell peppers are a must when cooking with Mexican-inspired flavors. Red bell pepper has a super satisfying crunch and mild sweetness that brightens up the whole dish.

These peppers don’t just taste great they bring the vitamins! These flashy fruits have almost your whole day’s allotment for vitamin A and about triple the recommendation for daily vitamin C.

Crushed Tomatoes – A can of crushed tomatoes brings the sweet and savory flavor of tomatoes to the party! Canned is the way to go for less kitchen stress because they’re already prepped and always fresh!

Mushrooms – Lovely mushrooms bring the earthy umami that this bright dish needs for balance. Use white buttons cremini, baby Bellas, or whatever variety is in season and on hand.

Coconut Milk – Beautifully smooth and luscious coconut milk makes this meal silky and saucy. This creamy addition gives the dish a nice stew-like feel that is super comforting and delicious!

Curry Spices – Curry spice contains a mix of amazing flavors that works with a lot more than just curry; in fact curry spices have a lot in common with Mexican spice rubs and seasoning blends. That is what makes them the right choice for this creamy, smooth, and savory chicken dish.

Curry spices commonly include ginger garlic, fennel, mace, cumin, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, and turmeric, so if you do not have pre-made curry spice just substitute the individual spices.

Salt and Pepper – A little salt and pepper rounds of the seasoning mixture.

Fresh Coriander – Present this dish with elegance by garnishing it with some fresh and fragrant coriander leaves.

Expert Notes

  • To store, allow the dish completely and then move it to an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • You can reheat this dish in the microwave or on the stovetop. Stir it well before serving again.
