Best Way to Prepare Betty Crocker Chicken Curry In 15 Min

Betty Crocker Chicken Curry is one of my favorite recipes in the whole wide world. It’s a really old recipe from the 1960s, I’d say, and it has been sitting in my cookbook forever.

The reason may be that it is not actually for “chicken”, but for “chicken pieces”. You can use any cut-up chicken parts you want – drumsticks, thighs, wings, breasts. And the result is so delicious! You can’t go wrong with this one.

I think they even made it to the TV in Canada at some point because I remember seeing Betty Crocker on tv making Betty Crocker Chicken Curry. I remembered her wearing a bright orange shirt and brown pants.

Directions:

1. Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat.

2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add to saucepan and cook, occasionally turning, until browned on all sides.

3. Remove chicken from saucepan and keep warm. Add onions to drippings in pan and sauté for 2 minutes or until tender but not browned. Stir in curry powder and ginger; cook 1 minute longer, stirring constantly.

4. Stir in soup and broth until smooth. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; simmer for 3 minutes or thickened, frequently stirring with a wire whisk.

5. If needed, stir in additional chicken broth. Return chicken to saucepan; heat through over low heat (do not boil). Serve over hot cooked rice.

6. Serve with vegetables of your choice.

Note: I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, onions, frozen peas and carrots for this recipe. The cooking time is way shorter than the original because the vegetables are already pre-cooked, in my case. But it’s up to you how you want to cook the vegetables.
