Easy Chutney Chicken
This delish recipe is taken from one of my favorite cookbooks! It is called Keeping Up Cookbook and I highly recommend this amazing collection to everyone!!! It is a little pricey at $25, but it will become one of your standard go-to cookbooks. You can find it and the companion volume, Favorites, at keepingupcookbook.com. Seriously, this cookbook is amazing! I have only found 1 recipe that I didn't love and it was still quite good.
The Mr. and I have a serious love for Indian Food! We love finding recipes to curb our Indian cravings and this fabulous chicken dish really does the trick! The kids like it too!!!
I did things a little differently than the original recipe, I'll note both ways here.
6 chicken breasts, each cut into 2 pieces, or 18-20 chicken tenders
3 T flour
2 T oil
1 jar (14 oz) mango chutney (original recipe calls for 2 cups)
1/4 t cayenne pepper (original recipe calls for 1/2 t)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 c chicken broth
1/2 c water (original recipe calls for white wine)
1 t curry powder
1 t ground ginger
I served the chicken with couscous, but I am sure it would be delicious with basmati or Jasmine rice. Add steamed or stir-fried veggies to finish off your dinner!
I'll try to get better with my food photography skills! I wish you could have smelled and seen it in all its glory!!!
