Quick & Simple Chicken Curry with Pineapple

It has really been a while since I've actually posted up a recipe as such - however rest assure with the new kitchen at my new home there will be a steady full of sexy time recipes.

This recipe, although sounds odd actually packs a good punch when the correct flavours and ingredients are combined together. You're probably wondering, why the heck pineapple and curry? Well if you're like me and your roots trace back to the deep food culture of Asia then you would understand spice & tangy are a matched made in heaven! The flavours I'm trying to achieve here in this quick recipe would be similar to those of a spicy & tangy soup and that works wonders not to mention the ladies love pineapple :)

  • 1kg of roughly chopped up chicken thigh fillets (if you're health conscious, breast will do too)
  • 1 roughly chopped brown onion
  • 3~4 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1/2 a pineapple (if you don't have fresh then a can will do)
  • 1x package of Indian Curry paste (make sure it's spicy, non of that butter chicken rubbish)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Optional chilli flakes
Chop all that shit up to your liking, no need to make them pretty especially the garlic and onion as they will be cooked up to shit anyway. Heat up a pot or a deep pan with some olive oil and brown up the onion and garlic, reduce heat. Once brown and translucent, add in chicken and brown the crap out of them. Whilst that's sizzling along, mix the curry paste with about 300~400mL of water and whisk it till it looks like Friday night's liquid exiting from your mouth. Bring up the heat and then add in the mixture, it should burn the shit out of your eyes when the liquid is heated up but damn does it smell freaking awesome. Bring it to a strong boil, then reduce the heat to a steady simmer and crack open a beer or 3 - reward yourself as you've done great. Once the liquid is near thick add in your chopped pineapple and bring it to a boil, the sugary goodness should thicken & sweeten up the curry. Quickly taste your masterpiece and adjust taste with salt & pepper if required and if it's not hot enough add a few teaspoons of chilli flakes (the hotter you make it, the more grog you'll consume with whoever is having dinner with you).

Serve with naan bread OR rotti, the supermarket pre-made shit is pretty good with this meal and make sure you have loads of cold alcohol ready. This meal needs it!
