  • 1 onion sliced thinly

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 600g chopped tomato

  • 900g chicken boneless, chopped into chunks

  • 1 tbsp garam masala

  • 1 tbsp ground coriander

  • 1 tbsp ground cumin

  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated

  • 4 cloves garlic crushed

  • 1 handful fresh coriander chopped

  • 1 tbsp chilli powder


  1. Place oil in a pan, when heated put the onions in and fry for 8 minutes.
  2. Add one can of chopped tomatoes, stir and place lid on for about 10 minutes on a medium heat. Stir occasionally.
  3. Add chicken and all the spices. Cook on a high heat whilst stirring.
  4. Add half a can of tomatoes, stir the pot, change the heat to a low to medium and place the lid on for 15 minutes.
  5. Add chopped coriander and switch off.
  6. Serve with white boiled rice or naan bread.

Handy Hint

The spicy level can be altered by adding a green chilli for a hot curry or adding less chilli powder for a milder taste. If making for children you may also add a can of coconut milk instead of the half can of tomatoes to sweeten it. Mmmmmmm, delicious.

    This is my new favourite recipe, we've had it twice this week. Both times we added the coconut milk and it was delicious. Didn't try it out on the toddlers though as we wanted to make it a bit spicier.

    Made this and it was delicious. I would probably make up a separate batch for the kids though, adding less chilli powder than in the recipe for them, but more for the adults. We used the coconut milk version and it was lovely!

    This is a chicken curry done in a hurry, hence the name 'Chicken Hurry'. Quick, easy, healthy and cheaper than buying a takeaway for the whole family!
