Curried Chicken Cooking Tips:

Frying the curry powder in the oil brings out the essential oils which helps perfume this dish.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: You can be make it a day or two in advance. Which will probably be better because the flavors would have developed more. After the curry cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days max.

Reheating: Turn on heat to medium, add all ingredients in a small or medium sauce pan, cook until mixture starts to boil. About 10 minutes or less.

You can use boneless chicken breast for this recipe.

If you’re in a rush, make the marinade and proceed with the recipe. The flavors still will be amazing.

If you cannot find scotch bonnet peppers or scotch bonnet sauce. Use a jalapeno, serrano or habanero.
