Steps for Tastiest Curry Chicken & Rice

Done
16 Minutes

Prepare the Rice and chicken breasts

Cook rice according to packet instructions. If you want more flavor, I recommend preparing my recipe for Spanish Rice (link in directions). Meanwhile, dice the chicken breasts, add olive oil to a non-stick frypan, add the meat and cook over medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked through.

15 Minutes

Prepare the curry paste

In the frypan add the homemade vegetable broth (link in directions or click the ingredient), curry powder and coconut milk. Instead of vegetable broth, you can use condensed chicken soup, chicken broth or simply water. after adding everything, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Wrapp up!

When rice is cooked, drain and rinse. In a large dish, place the rice and chicken mixture separately (see the recipe's picture). You can also sprinkle some fresh herbs for design.
Another design can be achieved if you place the chicken mixture over rice.
Enjoy!

About Curry Chicken & Rice recipe

There are a lot of websites – cookbooks with recipes for the same thing, but take into consideration that every recipe is unique and all cooks leave their personal “mark“. This curry chicken and rice has my mark and is rethought for weight-loss feature, but also for tastiness. In the recipe’s steps is written to cook the rice according to package instructions, but if you want to prepare the rice with more flavor and taste, and you are not in search for a weight-loss recipe, try my Spanish Rice (a side dish that adds greater flavor than simple rice). But, if you searched for light dishes, I recommend to not change a thing in the ingredients list or their amount. However, you can use condensed chicken soup or chicken broth instead of my homemade vegetable broth. Moreover, there are few ingredients, making this recipe a cheap one and one that can be made in ~ 40 minutes.

 

 

 

How to prepare my Homemade Vegetable Broth – Recipe

Preparing every meal at home is way healthier than any fast-food or restaurant. I’ll show you how to prepare vegetable broth at home:

You need the following ingredients: 10 cups distilled water, 2 medium Onions, 3 medium Garlic cloves, 3 medium Carrots, 4 Celery Stalk, 2 big Potatoes (with skin), 1/2 cup Dried Parsley, 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme, 1 teaspoon Dried Basil, 1 tablespoon Liquid Aminos.

Follow these steps:

  1. Scrub the potatoes thoroughly with a vegetable brush. Cut them into 1-inch thick pieces.
  2. Cut the rest of the vegetables into 1-inch pieces. Add the distilled water in a large soup pot and add the vegetables and seasonings (all in). The water must cover the vegetables. Bring to boil.
  3. After Boiling for 5 to 10 minutes, reduce the heat just enough the water boils gently. Simmer for one hour.
  4. After one hour of simmering, discard the vegetables. Use the veggie leftovers as I said in directions.

 

 

Curry Chicken & Rice is great for Weight-Loss and you’ll feel full longer

As I said, the recipe is made for weight-loss programs and doesn’t need to be modified in any way because it is tasty enough to be liked by any food critic. The chicken meat (especially chicken breasts) is a great source of low-fat protein which contributes to muscle growth and development and controls the body’s homocysteine amino acid levels (which makes it very good for your heart). It is great for weight-loss diets due to the B6 vitamin, keeping healthy vessels, energy levels balanced, and helps your metabolism to burn away calories. On the other hand, rice is low in fat, is easy to digest, and has a lot of B vitamins. Moreover, eating rice will make your brain think you’re full for a longer period.

 

As per ndtv.com, a number of people stay away from rice, as it packs high amounts of carbohydrates and is rich in calories. But should you eliminate it from your diet altogether? Not necessarily. Rice is also low in fat, is easily digestible, gluten-free grain that offers a number of B vitamins as well. So you may want to re-consider banning it completely from your diet. According to your dietary needs and the kind of low-carb or low-calorie diet you may be following, adjust your portions of rice and skip eating carbs in meals before or after the one with rice.
