Jamaican-style, easy curry chicken recipe with a healthy serving of cauliflower. Just toast your spices, brown your chicken and let it simmer with the cauliflower for a quick weeknight meal. No side dish necessary!
Serves: 4
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 4 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 3 sprigs of thyme, leaves only
  • 3 scallion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces (approximately 3 lbs)
  • 2 16-oz bags frozen cauliflower
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. In a large pot, add oil, curry powder, ground ginger, thyme, scallion and garlic.
  2. Toast over medium high heat while stirring continuously for approximately 2 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken and let it brown on each side for approximately 4 minutes. You just want to create a bit of a curry crust on the chicken, not cook it all the way through.
  4. Add cauliflower and water to the pot.
  5. Stir to combine so that the cauliflower starts to drink up some of the curry sauce.
  6. Cover and drop the heat down to medium.
  7. Simmer for approximately 35 minutes, until chicken is cooked through, stirring very gently about half way through.
  8. Add garlic powder and onion powder and season with salt and pepper to taste. I normally do not finish off curry with garlic powder and onion powder, but I find that the cauliflower needs something extra to help it match the flavor of the chicken.
