Happy Wednesday! And happy March! Does that mean Spring is on its way??
I am SO excited to bring you this recipe for this most delicious Indian chicken yogurt curry! And even more excited to be partnering with Nancy’s Yogurt for this post!
This Indian style chicken curry is omgeee good! Slow cooked chicken, in a rich tomato spicy sauce – are you drooling yet? Made better by the fact that it’s lightened up using my all time favorite Organic Whole Milk Yogurt from Nancy’s!
Nancy’s Yogurt is an Oregon based, family run company that provides the most delicious dairy products such as their yogurts, kefir, sour cream and cream cheese. Not only do they provide amazing dairy products, but they also pride themselves in using real ingredients in their products, which is something I can definitely get behind!
I love using products that I know follow sustainable practices AND are good for your health! When Adam and I first moved to Portland we were looking for local products that we could use on a regular basis, and Nancy’s was one of the first yogurts we picked up to try. Needless to say, we use Nancy’s on a day to day basis in our household!
The organic whole milk yogurt I used for the chicken yogurt curry takes the curry to the next level. I wanted to make a curry similar to a butter chicken, but without all the heavy cream that is traditionally used, so opted to substitute the heavy cream for the organic whole milk yogurt.
The yogurt makes this curry as creamy as it would if you used heavy cream and I love knowing that it is just that little bit healthier for me! So it’s kinda like a healthier butter chicken! You with me?
This Indian style chicken yogurt curry is light, fresh and has the most beautiful spice blend to it, without being overly heavy on the chili. The freshness of the lime adds an extra element of freshness to the dish and as mentioned, this curry is oh so creamy from the organic yogurt.
Recipe Notes – Indian style chicken yogurt curry
- Adding the yogurt – slowly add the yogurt OR add some of the hot liquid bit by bit into the yogurt before pouring back into the slow cooker to avoid curdling.
- Don’t have a slow cooker? This can easily be adapted to a stove top. See recipe notes below!
- Serving – serve with fresh cilantro, lime wedges, jasmine rice and my go-to naan bread.
It’s perfect for an easy weeknight meal (hello slow cooker) or if you’re looking for a cozy meal for easy weeknight entertaining. Regardless of the occasion, this curry is extremely easy to make and bursting with flavour.
