Roasted Curried Chicken

Jan 23, 2012 by

I love curry. I think if I could curry everything, I probably would – just to try it. Ok well, not EVERYTHING. I’ve  curried Tofu a few times. That turned out super!

In Jamaica, it is traditional to stew curried chicken. And for the most part, that is how I’ve always prepared curried chicken. Its great. But I wanted to do it a bit differently. You know, just because. I figured it would be ok to roast chicken that has been seasoned with curry. Especially since I’ve found a new appreciation for roasting chicken. It’s so easy! And the skin is so crispy and yummy.

When stewing curried chicken, carrots and potatoes are the usual suspects in the dish, so I kept them. I couldn’t leave them out. Besides, they taste amazing when roasted!

  1. Lyn, Wow! Curry is so versatile. I’ve done a similar dish some time back … thanks for reminding me!! Question: Why place the garlic in between the pieces like that? I’m a bit curious about that.

    On another note, have you ever tried black rice? My mom told me about and sings its praises … and you know she’s into healthy eating so it must be good!

    Sharing this post …. right NOW!!

    • Yes, curry is so great and can be used in so many ways. I put the garlic between the pieces because it makes the oil fragrant while it is roasting. Also, when I make gravy from the drippings it gives such a great flavour! I didn’t like the result when I tucked the garlic under the chicken. Maybe its just me, but it works this way for me :-)

      OMG CD I picked up a pack of black rice at the grocery store!!! It was either that or a wild rice combo…I almost bought it but decided to hold off for a minute. Plus, I want to do some more research on recipes! Yay CD’s Mommy! 😀

  2. My roommate LOVES curry, I think she would love if I made this for her! Thanks for sharing =)

  3. Looks amazing! Good tip for the garlic, too. Thanks!
