We highly recommend using chicken pieces, such as thighs, legs, quarters, etc as these cuts of meats are considerably less expensive. This entire dish can be made for under $4 using pieces as opposed to boneless skinless breast meat. If you prefer boneless, skinless breast meat, be sure to adjust the cooking time according to the thickness of the breast.

This recipe calls for flour, however, if you’re following a Keto-Friendly diet, you can use crushed pork rinds, almond flour or coconut flour in place of the flour.

•2 1/2 pounds chicken pieces (breasts and/or thighs)
•1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained

  1. I cooked this recipe today and I really, really liked it. The flavors were sensational. Even my picky husband could not get enough.

    Because I only cook for two people and the recipe is enough for generous four to six portions, I knew that some of it would go into the freezer for another time, so I left the fresh tomato garnish off. I served it over rice and added a side salad. Everybody who likes curry needs to try this.
