Chicken Curry- my way

Updated on January 6, 2012

Try it- you just might like it :).

Hello fellow Hubbers! I hope you are having a great day today wherever you are in this world! I wanted to share another recipe with you. It is a mildly spicy chicken dish which can either be baked in the oven or cooked on the stove, based on your preferences. I hope you will try it and enjoy it.


1. One pack chicken drumsticks (legs only)- usually 6-8 in number

2. Half container of 32 oz plain yogurt (Dannon, Bison or Store brand works fine)

3. 1 cup Heinz Kick'rs Sauce or Maggi Hot and Sweet Sauce (Indian grocery store)

4. 1/2 tbsp of each: turmeric, black pepper and chilli powder (or cayenne pepper)

5. 1/2 tbsp of each: ginger and garlic paste

6. Salt to taste


Marinate: Combine yogurt, spices and sauce. Mix well. Then add chicken legs and mix well. Let sit either outside (if you are cooking that day) for about 1 hour or in the refrigerator (if you plan to cook it the next day).

Baking: If you plan to bake the chicken, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit while you are marinating or before you take the marinated chicken out of the refrigerator. Transfer the marinated chicken into a baking dish (13 x 9 inch is preferable). Turn the oven heat down to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover with aluminum foil and put in the oven. Bake for 40 minutes. Then remove aluminum foil, mix chicken well and bake for another 20 minutes uncovered. Remove from the oven and serve. To see if the chicken is cooked, you can try a small piece (I do that).

Stove top: If you plan to cook the chicken on the stove, make sure you have a big enough (deep) pot to put the chicken in. Turn heat onto high, use 1 tablespoon of oil to coat bottom of pot. Then, when the pot is hot, add marinated chicken to it. Mix well and cover. Turn heat to medium-high and cook for about 35 minutes, mixing occasionally to prevent burning. Then uncover and cook on low-medium for another 20-25 minutes, mixing occasionally. To see if the chicken is cooked, you can try a small piece (I do that).

You can serve the chicken either with bread or with rice. It should serve about 3-4 people if each person has 2 legs. If each person has 1 leg, then it will serve 6-8 people. I hope this recipe turns out well for you!

As always, comments, thoughts and ideas are welcomed!

      Hi Ghaelach.

      Thank you. I sometimes put chopped onions in the mix as well. My cousin doesn't like the texture of onions so when I make it for everyone I usually don't put them in there. Sometimes you can also grind up the onions, garlic, ginger and other spices and then just add it to the marinade. It comes out just as tasty. :) Good luck and I hope it turns out well for you! Happy Holidays!
