Chicken Curry – Dukan Friendly
Chicken curry has long been one of my favourite meals and I have the best recipe for it, but…… my recipe contains cream and quite a bit of it, so it’s really fattening and not at all suitable for the Dukan Diet.
Or is it?????
Last night I decided to try and adapt my usual recipe to see if I can make it Dukan friendly and the result…… it tasted pretty good. Didn’t have quite the hit of my usual chicken curry, but I think I just needed to add a little more curry powder than I did. So here’s the Dukan friendly chicken curry recipe.
- 500g chicken tenderloins
- 1/2 onion – chopped
- 1 clove garlic – chopped
- 1 celery stick – chopped
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- 1 tspn chicken stock powder (or 1 stock cube)
- 2 tspn curry powder
- 2 tbspn cornflour
- 1 cup water
- 1 tub philidelphia light cooking cream
Using a non stick frying pan, brown and slightly cook the chicken. Remove from pan.
In a large saucepan, add just a tiny amount of olive oil for cooking and saute the onion, garlic and celery. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon.
In a small bowl, mix the cornflour with a little of the water to form a smooth mixture. Add the cornflour mixture, remaining water, stock powder and curry powder to the onion mixture, stirring continuously. Add the philidelphia cooking cream and stir through.
Add the chicken to the curry mixture and cook on a low heat until chicken is cooked through.
Serve with a couple slices of Dukan bread.
When cooking for the rest of the family who are not on the Dukan diet, I just cook up some rice and serve their portions with rice. Also if you are on a phase where you can eat nuts, try saute some slivered almonds and sprinkle on top of the curry chicken.
Philidelphia light cooking cream is 60% less fat so does still contain some fat, so I wouldn’t have it regularly on the Dukan diet, but I believe it is ok to have every now and again.
