The Best Chicken Curry – to Die for!!!!

It’s so flipping easy!

Do you love a curry? Well this Easy Chicken curry is so divine, please give it a try I’m sure you’ll love it!

This recipe is actually possibly my favourite all time quick dinner

(I would imagine I’ve made it more than 100 times, it’s always my go to).




It’s so tasty, in all these years  I have not met anyone who doesn’t like it.

Give it a go.

You can make it quite low if you do a few switches, like use skimmed milk and fry lite spray. 

Or you can use Coconut oil which add a lovely note to the dish, you can read all above coconut oil and health benefits is my review

AND whatever you do 

DO NOT skip the fresh coriander  it is so important for the overall fragrance of the recipe!

It is probably the most popular recipe on Easypeasylemonsqueezy Blog!

And it come close to being MY personal most made dish.


30 minutes to the best Chicken Curry!

You can make this lovely curry in just 30 minutes!

I always try and make a big batch when I make it. ( Do you batch cook?)

That way I can pop portions in the freezer. It means I’ve always got a dinner to bang in the oven or the microwave!  

My very own ready meal I guess, but it’s home made!!! 🙂

And before I forget you must try it’s little sister,  Banging Veggie Curry so so lovely too!

Curry Pastes 

In both curry recipes I use a Madras Paste.

Don’t be scared by the facts it’s Madras, I use it  purely for the flavour direction, it’s really not that hot!

There are a lot of Curry Pastes in the super market however this is the one I use, always:  Patak

Please let me have your comments if you try this Easy Chicken Curry to die for!  

Please, just a quick note below the recipe would be great I promise you’ll love it

Many Thanks Clare x
