Since this is the start of our two-week final exam period, you might not be seeing as much of me in the days to come. But instead of skipping a post today, I figured I’d show you the quick dinner I put together tonight. Why not? It’s not Southern food and it’s not very glamorous, but it’s good food!
Making curry isn’t incredibly time consuming, but I really just need to cut corners wherever I can right now. Instead of making the curry sauce from scratch, I marinated and broiled a protein for each of us and then simmered it in prepared sauce.
The marinade is really good so I think it warrants a Recipage entry even though this is definitely a semi-homemade dish. I made it with chicken for Jason and with tofu for myself.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Keywords: entree Indian
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 1/2 c. greek yogurt
- 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 2 t. olive oil
- 1 T. indian curry powder
- salt and pepper
- 1 lb. protein of your choice (either boneless chicken thighs or firm tofu)
- jar of storebought curry sauce
Cut either the chicken or tofu into large chunks (I like to do strips for chicken, and triangles for tofu).
Whisk together the yogurt, garlic, olive oil, curry powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Toss the chicken/tofu in the mixture and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. I like to use a ziploc bag for this.
Preheat broiler to high.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
Place the marinated protein in a single layer on the pan.
Place it under the preheated broiler, turning all the pieces when the top side starts to brown.
Remove from the oven once both sides are nicely charred. The liquids will probably burn on the foil but that’s totally fine.
Set the chicken/tofu aside.
In a skillet, heat the curry sauce to a simmer. Add the cooked protein into the pan.
Toss and let simmer for a few minutes before serving.
One of the fastest meals ever! I paired it with some sauteed spinach and frozen TJ’s naan (which cooks in 2 minutes in the oven). Delish!
Have a great night! I hope your week is getting off on the right foot.
