When I first came across this recipe for “Loga’s Microwave Chicken Curry” on allrecipes.com, I was intrigued; 5 tablespoons of curry powder stirred into 1 cup of ketchup? Then an added teaspoon of Cayenne on top? This was obviously not my great aunt Effie’s allrecipes.com; I mean, where’s the mushroom soup?
Still, it looked silly enough to work, and far too easy to toss together not to try.
Combine the curry, cayenne, and ketchup together and spread in a round, ‘wavable casserole dish. I used my home made ketchup, which is kinda thick, and has a touch more bite than store-bought ‘sup.
Add the chicken legs, bone in toward the center of the dish, and roll to coat in the sauce.
Cover the dish – I used a plate this time, next I’ll just go with plastic wrap – and ‘wave for 5 minutes.
Turn the chicken once more and ‘wave for another 5 minutes. If your sauce is thin, you can leave it uncovered for this part to thicken a bit.
That is it! Beautiful chicken in a tangy, tasty sauce in about 20 minutes!
I had mine over spiced basmati rice with some freshly diced parsley scattered over the top. Oh, and a lovely green bean and romaine salad on teh side with Thousand Island Dressing.
