Red Curry Chicken- sooo good!

  • Red Curried Chicken
  • (from

  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection® Red Curry Powder
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection® Garlic Salt
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose apple (Golden Delicious), cut in cubes
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection® Garam Masala
  • 1 (14 ounce) can light coconut milk


  1. In large self-closing plastic bag, combine flour, red curry powder and garlic salt. Add chicken; shake to coat.
  2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet. Add chicken cubes; saute until well browned. Reduce heat. Add apple and onion; cook 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, garam masala and coconut milk.
  3. Cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice with condiments such as: chopped pistachios or peanuts, golden raisins, sliced green onions, flaked coconut, and mango chutney.
  4. Substitution: May substitute 1 teaspoon ground cumin and 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice for 1 teaspoon garam masala.

I haven't tried red curry powder before, and I was worried it would be a lot more spicy than yellow curry.  Well, it was a little different in flavor, but it was amazing!  Our kids even ate this dish.  Very flavorful and exotic.  We'll add this to our Indian food rotation, definitely.
