When I was first learning how to cook with spices I signed up for every cooking class or cooking demo I could find that was highlighting spices. This recipe is adapted from one that I learned at a cooking demo called “Spice It Up! Reduce Inflammation” at my local hospital. Just from the title alone you can see why my interest was peaked.

It has since become a staple in our meal rotation and I promise it won’t disappoint. Whether you’re new to cooking with spices or a seasoned pro this easy and tasty curry will sure to be a win.

Indian Curried Chicken & Chickpeas

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsps ground turmeric
  • 2 tsp garam masala (or your favorite curry blend)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp ginger, peeled & grated (~3 inch piece of ginger)
  • 2 large yellow onions, chopped
  • 6 boneless, skinless, chicken thighs, chopped
  • 1 (15 oz) can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups bone broth
  • 5 oz greens (baby spinach, baby kale, chard, bok choy, etc)

Directions

Step 1: Saute onions in olive oil until soft and transparent.
Step 2: Add spices, ginger, and garlic. Stir constantly to prevent the spices from sticking; ~2 minutes.
Step 3: Add the chicken, bone broth, chickpeas, & tomatoes, cover, and simmer for 30-40 minutes; until chicken is fork tender. As with most stews, the longer you let it simmer, the more the flavors will meld, and the tastier it becomes.
Step 4: Add the greens and cook just until wilted, ~2 minutes, then serve!
Optional Topping: a dollop of plain greek yogurt and fresh mint.
Make It A Meal: serve with rice or another whole grain of your choice and a side salad.
