Easy Chicken Curry

This is an easy chicken curry that can be whipped up in the time it takes you to cook up some rice. If you can’t get your hands on Ajvar, just use a couple tablespoons of tomato paste and some dashes of hot sauce. I was out of jasmine rice so I served this curry with wild rice tonight. It was really good!


  • 300 grams chicken (1 large breast)
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 onion
  • 1 thumb sized piece of Ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 1/2 jar of Ajvar (bell pepper garlic paste)
  • 2 tbsp good curry powder
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1.5 cups uncooked rice
  • salt to taste
  • 1 lemon



In a large pot with a lid, cook the rice with about 3 cups of water and a big pinch of salt. (Or cook the rice however you want) In a large pan, cook the onion and zucchini in the oil. Then add garlic and ginger. Then add the cubed chicken and curry powder. After chicken is cooked, add the rest of the ingredients and salt to taste. Simmer gently for 10 minutes or until rice is done.
