One-Pot Chicken & Vegetable Curry




About: I'm a single full time working mom, food enthusiast, and recipe day-dreamer! Try out my instructables! They are super easy to follow, have tons of photos, and are always delicious!!

I love Chicken Curry! I made a One-Pot version that's lower on fat and chuck full of vegetables because well..we're on a diet over here. But this curry is sooo flavorful, you won't miss all that butter and oil! This is a great quick dinner too! As a working mom, I love meals that I can actually prep and cook quickly after a full day of work to have time for homework, and games! Give my recipe a try! You're going to love the easy one-pot clean up, and amazing flavors! I usually double this recipe to have leftover's and use whole vegetables (just because its easier!)


  • 3/4 pounds chicken breasts
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1/2 large onion
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup fat free, low sodium chicken stock
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 tsp+ salt
  • 1/4 + tsp black pepper
  • pinch ground ginger
  • 1 tbls curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


Step 1: Chop the Vegi's

Chop your vegi's into bite size pieces and throw them into a large bowl for later.

Step 2: Prep Your Chicken

Cup up the chicken into small strips, fajita style. If you prefer, you can cube it. It's all about preference. Season it with a dusting of salt, pepper and ginger.

Step 3: Quick-sear the Chicken

Crank a large non-stick pan on HI and give it a little vegetable spray. Throw the chicken in and mix it around for just a few minutes to give it a quick sear. You don't want to fully cook the chicken, just sear it all around. Remove the chicken and set aside.

Step 4: Cook the Vegi's

Throw the vegi's into the pan. Add the chicken stock, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1 tbls curry. Mix well and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over medium low for about 10 minutes or until the vegetables begin to soften up.

Step 5: Finish the Curry

Sprinkle in the corn starch, and return the chicken to the pan. Give it a good stir and cook covered another 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickens. Serve alongside white rice and enjoy, guilt free!

    I'm not that fond of curry, but this recipe looks so good anyway I may just substitute a different spice. Actually this is a good chicken and veggie base that could be used with lots of other flavor combinations. Love your one pot meals. Oh yeh!
