  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 and 1⁄2 to 2 teaspoons of curry powder
  • 1⁄4 cup of onion (minced)
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 2 cups of cooked chicken (diced), whatever you have leftover
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 to 4 cups of cooked rice



In the first step, melt butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat. Now, sauté curry powder and onion in melted butter for about 2 to 3 minutes to bring out flavors in curry powder. Next, blend in ground ginger, sugar, salt, and flour. Cook over low heat until the mixture is bubbly and smooth.

In the second step, remove the saucepan from heat and whisk in milk and chicken broth. Bring mixture to a boil and stir constantly. Boil until mixture thickens, for about 1 minute. Now, add lemon juice and chicken and heat to warm the chicken.

In the last step, spoon Chicken Curry over the cooked rice. Serve with accompaniments on the side so each person can top as desired.
