Ingredients for Chicken Curry
- Coriander, cumin, turmeric, fennel seeds, cinnamon, pepper, ground mustard, ground cloves, cayenne pepper and salt – these spices build incredible flavor in this dish. Together they create a homemade curry blend.
- Olive oil – used for sautéing.
- Fresh onion, garlic and ginger – these aromatics add a key depth of flavor.
- Low-sodium chicken broth – to create a sauce base to coat the chicken.

- Chicken breasts – be careful not to over-cook so the chicken doesn’t become dry.
- Cornstarch – used to thicken the sauce slightly.
