Sweet Curry Chicken

Photos by Chef Brilliant & Chef Grand

Ok now Im sorry but Chef Brilliant eye balled this whole recipe, so this is made based on taste and whether or not your in the mood to experiment.  However, this dish is well balanced in savory and sweet! So here we go, I will give you a quick break down of ingredients.

Boneless chicken breast cut into cubes, sauted with red and green peppers, onions and garlic, black pepper and salt to taste. In a medium mixing bowl, add 2/3 cups of water and beat in 1 tbsp of flour with a fork, curry powder, (we also had 1 packet of curry flavored salad dressing from Burger King), brown sugar, honey, fresh thyme and cayenne pepper. We removed the chicken cubes from the pan and added the sauce mixture to cook on medium. After the sauce thickens up then we readded the chicken cubes. Remember we’re going for savory and sweet so season to your liking and curry can be very strong in flavor so you might end up adding a few good squeezes of honey and/or brown sugar. After everything reduces and is cooked you will have a very nice curry dish with a slight flare or twist. Enjoy!
