Creamy 6-Ingredient Chicken Curry Recipe Is Ready In 20 Minutes

You can make this chicken curry in a hurry! With just six simple ingredients, this easy chicken curry recipe has minimal prep and cooks in less than 15 minutes. Yes, 15 minutes!

This chicken curry recipe is so simple to prepare. Onion and yellow bell pepper are cooked in olive oil in a skillet until softened. Stir in half of the curry powder (yes, just half) and cook for about two minutes to release the flavors. The seasoned vegetables are then removed to a plate and set aside. The chicken is cooked next in the same skillet and sprinkled with the remaining curry powder to add flavor. Put the cooked vegetables back into the pan along with the frozen peas and sour cream and heat through. Done!

Serve this easy one-pan curry recipe with rice or cauliflower rice for a low-carb option. The curry is great for meal prep, too. Pack it in meal prep containers with some rice and you're good to go.

That's not a curry. I'll pass.

It has curry in it so it is a curry recipe. Maybe no authentic but it's not called authentic chicken curry.

I like to use coconut oil in curry recipes. Also canned chicken works if you are in a rush!
