Healthier Chicken Curry

Curry. Is there anything better? My mom makes the BEST Yellow Chicken Curry. It’s actually pretty easy to make and it’s perfect for meal prepping because it makes a big batch and stays good for at least a few days…you can even freeze it if you want. As a bonus, this curry is pretty healthy and I usually make a few adjustments to make it even healthier! It’s only 160 calories per serving (2/3 cup) and it’s filling, protein packed (16 grams per serving) and really yummy!

P.S. recipe cred to my mom for the original/un-modified version. Love you mom!

Healthified Chicken Curry

{Makes 6 servings} Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. butter

  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion

  • 1/4 cup flour (if you use gluten free, this recipe can be GF)

  • 1 tbsp. curry powder

  • 1/2-1 tsp. salt

  • Dash of pepper

  • 1 tsp. sugar

  • 1/4 tsp. ginger

  • 1 tsp. corn starch

  • 2 cups skim milk

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 10 oz. canned chicken

  • 4 cups brown rice


  1. Chop onion and add it with the butter to a saucepan; simmer on the stove over medium heat until onions are caramelized

  2. Add flour, curry powder, salt, sugar, ground ginger, and corn starch to saucepan and stir

  3. Add 2 cups skim milk to form a thickened white sauce

  4. Add chicken broth and chicken and let simmer on low to medium heat on the oven until sauce is thickened (usually about 10-15 minutes)

  5. While sauce is thickening, cook the rice

  6. Once sauce is thick, pour sauce over rice and enjoy!

That’s it. Pretty simple and such an awesome and different recipe. I think a lot of people assume curry is too complicated to make but this recipe is so simple and SO delicious!
