DINNER: Indian Style Mushroom Chicken

Indian chicken dishes don't often feature mushrooms, but I took a chance, and this recipe turned out pretty well...fungi away:

Serving Size: 4-6

  • 1.5 tsp cumin, whole or ground
  • 1.5 tsp coriander, whole or ground
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp red chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1.5 tsp dried basil, or a fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced (I prefer red, but it's up to you)
  • 1 pd chicken breast or thigh filets, chopped into small-medium size pieces
  • Place onions, coriander, cumin, garlic and cloves into a pan
  • Saute onions for at least 3-4 minutes on medium heat until golden brown (use at least 2 tbsp of canola oil)
  • Add mushrooms and allow to cook until mushrooms decrease in volume
  • Add chicken, black pepper, salt, cayenne pepper, and cover
  • Add basil and chili pepper flakes after the chicken has mostly cooked through
  • Serve over brown rice (and with a side of daal)
  • Enjoy!
