(Why I am re-posting this recipe? I was making this again and I wanted to check if I posted the recipe and I just found a few display errors in the first post that needed to be corrected.)
I love the challenging myself to cook for Friday meals (because come Thursday night, our fridge is almost always empty) with what I have left in the fridge and pantry from previous grocery shopping.
In contrast, our pantry is always well stocked. And while I was looking for something, anything, that I could turn into a delicious recipe, two ingredients stood out to me: a box of spaghetti and a package of curry paste.
Combining that with the pint of mushrooms and chicken ground casserole that had managed to survive the week, I realized I had all I needed to make a delicious Curry Chicken Spaghetti.
What I used for about 4-6 portions:
- 1/2 package spaghetti, cook them following the package instructions
- 375 g chicken ground
- 227 g white mushrooms
- 1/2 bottle tomato pasta ( strained )
- 1/2 package curry paste ( I like to use Kitchen of India brand )
- 5o ml cream
- 1 teaspoon dry dill
- salt and black pepper
- 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- chicken broth – home made if you have
Add a large pot with water to boil. When it starts to boil cook half of 450 g pasta package following the package instructions.
In a non stick, hot, skillet add the chicken ground. Give it a few stirs until the meet is not red anymore. Add about 2 cups chicken broth, stir and let it simmer for about 10- 15 min .
Clean and cut mushrooms in small cubes. Add the mushroom to the meat.
In a small bowl add half of the curry paste and 1 more cup of chicken broth. Add the cream and stir the paste to combine. Pour it over the chicken and mushroom mixture. Add the mustard and garlic powder. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about 10 – 15 min.
Mean while pasta has cooked. Drain it and put it back into the pot. Pour over the curry mixture. Add dill, salt, pepper. Give it a stir and cook for 2 more minutes.
So easy and no time needed for a delicious dinner or lunch !
P.S. My husband and daughter, who are not normally fans of spaghetti, came asking for seconds!
