Sweet Curry Chicken

I was inspired to come up with a recipe using some Sweet Curry Powder that I picked up on a recent visit to Penzeys Spices.  I looked through cookbooks to get inspiration and this is what I came up with.


2 lbs of skinless, boneless chicken thighs

2 tbs coconut oil or fat of choice (bacon grease would be great for this)

2 onions sliced

2 green peppers sliced

1 cup of raisins (I used Whole Foods golden raisins because they were the only ones I could find without added oils)

1 cup chicken broth (I used homemade)

1 tbs of Sweet Curry Powder

salt & pepper

green onions for garnish


Preheat oven to 375 deg F.

Heat a cast iron skillet with 1 tbs of coconut oil.  Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper (don’t be stingy because the curry powder does not have salt in it). Add half of the chicken and cook and both sides for about 4 minutes.  Transfer to a baking pan or dish, and repeat with the rest of chicken thighs adding more oil if needed.

After chicken is browned and transferred to baking pan, add onions, peppers, and raisins to the same skillet. Season with some salt and pepper.

Saute until onions start to soften, about 6-8 minutes. Cover chicken with mixture. Then add chicken broth and curry powder to skillet.  Make sure to get all of the brown bits off the bottom of the skillet. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 2 minutes.  Pour over chicken and veggies.

Cover with foil and bake in oven for about 30 minutes.

Remove, top with green onions, and enjoy.
