Quick Chicken, Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry

Dinner | May 13, 2015 | By

This quick chicken, sweet potato and chickpea curry is fast becoming one of my favourites to make on week nights, as it’s very quick and full of thai-inspired flavours.  So if you’re looking for an easy and fast meal to make after coming home from work – look no further! You can whip this up in around 30 minutes and there won’t be too many dishes to wash up after! I just love the fact curry dishes are so versatile, they can be tweaked in a multitude of ways, for example you can make this vegetarian by leaving out the chicken and replacing the stock with vegetable stock.

This serves two, but there will certainly be enough for seconds, or you could take the leftovers with you to work for lunch.

  5. 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  6. 3 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, chopped into 1 inch pieces

Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil for a couple of minutes, then add the onion and garlic and cook until soft. Stir in the curry paste and ground cumin. Cook for 1 minute, stirring all the time.
  2. Scoop out the coconut solids from the can, leaving the watery milk and add it to the saucepan, cooking for 1 minute. Add the chicken pieces and stir to combine.
  3. Add the rest of the coconut milk along with the sweet potatoes, chopped tomatoes and lime zest. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the sweet potatoes are tender. Add the chickpeas and heat through.

    This looks fantastic and full of veggies. Sweet potatoes are fab in curries.

    Do you recon it’d be just as tasty without the chicken Sarah? Id use chicken stock, but we rarely eat chicken these days…..

      Hi Laura, yeah it would be just as tasty but maybe not as filling. You could always add in some lentils (red or green) to beef it out a bit. I’d say around 100g or so. X

      I know, right? I’m falling head over heels in love with thai food recently. I’m actually going through the curry paste quicker than I originally thought I would! Yum. 🙂

      I had an unloved tin of tomatoes in the cupboard for too long so just thought why not? Do give it a go! 🙂
