Mouthwatering Chinese Chicken Curry / 1 Of My Favorite Recipes
This Chinese Chicken Curry took me forever to figure out. The recipe is so simple I was always adding to many ingredients. Finally, I figured out this didn’t need soy sauce and recipe was born. I love this Chinese Chicken Curry. I eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Traditionally, this does not include broccoli. Like most everything in life if you adding broccoli is your choice. I have two suggestions. One this dish might be too hot for the average person. If you are worried about heat do not add the chili crisp to the chicken marinade. Second, I use Ca Ri Ni an Do Madras Curry Powder, and it is on the hot side. If you find this curry too hot try a yellow curry powder instead.
If you are new to making Chinese food, my favorite rice is Nishiki Medium grain premium rice. Make sure you wash all rice under cold water throughly. You want the water to run clear before cooking or steaming the rice. You can make rice in a pot but a rice steamer is a much better and easier option. I hope you enjoy this Chinese Chicken Curry.

What is Curry?
Curry is a dish that typically consists of meat or vegetables cooked in a spicy sauce. The sauce is made from a combination of spices and may include ingredients such as ginger, turmeric, cumin, and chili peppers. The origins of curry can be traced back to India, where it has been a staple food for centuries. The word “curry” is derived from the Tamil word “kari,” which means “sauce.” Curry dishes have also been popular in other parts of South Asia, such as Pakistan and Sri Lanka, as well as in Southeast Asia and the Caribbean. Curry has also been adopted and adapted in many other countries, such as the UK and Japan.
Chinese and Indian curries are two different types of dishes that have some similarities but also distinct differences. Both are known for their bold and flavorful spices and are often served with rice or bread.
Indian curry is typically made with a mixture of spices such as turmeric, cumin, and coriander, and often includes ingredients like ginger and garlic. The base of the curry is usually a mixture of yogurt or coconut milk with tomatoes and onions, and it can be made with a variety of meats, seafood, or vegetables. Indian curries are known for their complex and layered flavors, and can range from mild to very spicy.
Chinese curry, on the other hand, is typically made with a pre-made curry powder or paste that includes ingredients like turmeric, cumin, and chili powder. It is often made with a thicker sauce and is usually less spicy than Indian curry. Chinese curry is often made with beef, chicken, or seafood, and is often served with vegetables like carrots and potatoes.
In summary, Indian curry is a more complex and spicier and made with a variety of fresh ingredients while Chinese chicken curry is usually made with pre-made curry powder or paste, it is less spicy and has a thicker sauce.

Madras curry is a type of curry that originated in the southern Indian city of Madras, now known as Chennai.

The specific ingredients and level of spiciness can vary depending on the recipe or regional variation.

I specifically use madras curry for this Chinese chicken curry, but feel free to try out other curries if this is too hot.
