Delicious Tomato Chicken Thigh Curry

The best Chicken curries use thigh meat! Thigh meat locks in much more moisture than breast meat, meaning that you can cook the curry for a longer time which will bring the best out of the spices you add.

This curry won’t make you cry with heat following these measurements – feel free to add more spice to your taste. Springfield also do diced chicken leg meat which will take some of the hard work out for you!

Ingredients Prep

Method

This dish is a one pot wonder, no need to preheat the oven either! All that is needed is a skillet with a lid. If you prefer cooking in the oven, use an ovenproof casserole dish/cast-iron pan with a lid. Best served with rice, Bombay potatoes, or naan bread.

  1. Depending whether you opt for diced chicken legs or boneless thighs, the first step will be to chop the chicken into inch cubes. In batches, use a tablespoon of sunflower oil each time to fry off the chicken and place it to one side. (At least 5 minutes per batch until slightly golden on the edges.
  2. Turn down the heat of the pan and add in the onion. Finely dice the ginger, chilli, and garlic. Add this to the pan along with the curry powder.
  3. This dry mix might begin to stick, so at this point add the tin of chopped tomato’s to begin to deglaze the pan.
  4. Return the chicken to the pan and add the chopped peppers, all spice, mango chutney, and seasoning.
  5. At this point an optional extra is to run through some chopped sage leaves. Cover the pan with a lid and leave it to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Invite some friends to enjoy this tasty treat with you!
