Now that our calendars (not just Starbuck’s menu) have told us that it’s officially Autumn, the season calls for one of my favorite dishes of all time: Chicken Curry! With endless ways to customize it, this recipe’s sure to become a go-to of yours just as it is for me.
For as long as I can remember, my request for birthday dinners has been either my mom’s chili or this very recipe for Chicken Curry that has now been in our family for years! One of my favorite things about this meal is how simple it is while still being versatile. For example, I love to top my chicken with peanuts, tomatoes, cucumbers, and bananas (I know it sounds weird, but trust me, it is SO GOOD), whereas my siblings stick to mandarin oranges on theirs. The point is, pick the toppings you like, and you can take this dish to the next level!
Although my family’s recipe calls for sugar, flour, and milk, I’ve switched up these items for ingredients that’ll help you reach your nutritional goals or even suit food allergy needs too. That said, my Chicken Curry calls for these items instead:
a 1:1 sugar replacement (some good brands are Truvia or Lakanto and available almost everywhere).
Xanthan Gum (I like the brand Bob’s, Red Mill).
(Unsweetened) Almond, Cashew, etc., milk if lactose-sensitive.
More importantly than the swaps I make, and though a simple recipe, this meal is synonymous with celebration, family, and love for me - I can only hope the same for you all as well! Welcome to a glimpse into my kitchen once the leaves start to fall!
