Peanut Butter Chicken Curry

Long lists of ingredients often put me off making a curry, especially on busy weeknights when time is precious. However, this Peanutty Chicken Curry is different! The ingredients list is small and most of the items you will already have in your store cupboard (peanut butter being one of them) or fridge. It's a fairly speedy recipe too and you can have it on the table in under 40 minutes (even with three children distracting you), which is always a bonus when you have hungry mouths to feed.

I was sceptical whether peanut butter would work in a curry but it really does and gives the sauce a lovely smooth silky texture, as well as acting as a sauce thickener. This easy curry is now a staple in our house and features on our weekly meal plans regularly. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING PEANUTTY CHICKEN CURRY

  • If you don't like your curry hot omit the chilli from the recipe.
  • Up the goodness by adding some veggies like courgettes, peppers and mushrooms. Just fry them at the same time as the onion, garlic and chilli.
  • Double the quantities and pop the leftovers in the freezer so you have a quick week night dinner all ready to go.

  1. Nice idea using peanut butter for a quick curry, I guess it would be like a tasty satay flavour. Think I might have to give this a go!
