Chicken Curry Skillet Recipe

This is a simple chicken curry skillet dish that will wow your taste buds. The blend of curry, chicken, vegetables, and potatoes will leave you wanting seconds.

I feel so grateful that my late father taught me how to cook at a young age. He taught me a great lesson: have fun, and don't get caught up in exact measurements.

This recipe came to be because of my love of curry, chicken, vegetables, and potatoes. I played with different spices and ingredients until I came up with a skillet dish that I knew my family would love. I hope you enjoy it too.

      Hi Umesh-I am sure substituting chicken for other things would work just fine. I wouldn't put the cottage cheese in the frying pan but add it after vegetables are cooked. Thank you for coming by my skillet recipe, I appreciate it.

      Nice recipe. In India, some people do not take mutton or chicken. I think they can substitute chiken by tofu or cottage cheese in this recipe.

      Thanks for posting.

      I love the smokey flavor of curry and add it to many of my dishes. It gives it a great taste and my family eats much more when it is part of the ingredients. I will have to try your recipe suggestion.

      Hi Steve-the thing with curry is that you can't overdo it or it can ruin the recipe. I don't like it too hot either and buy mild curry. I thank you for reading the recipe even though your not a big fan of this spice.

      Unlike my friend billbuc, I love my veggies and will probably add a few more. The benefits of curry that you mentioned certainly motivate me to start using it more often. I can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks so much and will pin and share.

      I love curry and I'm a big fan of fast and easy recipes. I cook curry chicken (my own recipe of the day) but I have never added potatoes to my curry chicken. I will now because this looks delicious. Thanks for expanding my curry chicken recipes. Peace and take care.

      I’ve never been a fan of curry chicken but this dish looks and sounds delicious. I had no idea how good it was for you either. I’ll defiantly be giving curry another chance after seeing this dish and reading your article. Thanks Linda!

      Interesting and wholesale recipe that combines all my favourite ingredients! While preparing food I usually include all that is readily available in my kitchen or refrigerator rather than manage one special ingredient that is not available. So every time the recipe can have a different aroma.

      Your recipe sounds delicious and worth trying! Thanks for sharing!

      I agree not not get too wrapped up in exact measurements, as cooking is an art to some degree. This looks like a recipe worth trying. I enjoy mixing it up every now again to add new recipes into the rotation.
