Pressure Cooker Chicken Curry

Chicken Curry in the Pressure Cooker

One of my favorite slow cooker recipes is Chicken Curry.  I’ve also made a quick skillet version of this recipe.  It’s just so good!

This time I decided to try chicken curry in the pressure cooker.  I’ve been experimenting with altering slow cooker recipes for the pressure cooker.  Over all, this works really well.

For this recipe, I started with frozen chicken tenders.  On top of the chicken, I added salsa (nearly any type will work) and curry powder.  I set the pressure cooker to high pressure for 12 minutes.  It takes around 20 minutes to reach full pressure though, so the total time for this recipe is about 35 minutes.  That’s pretty fast, especially since it started with frozen chicken.

Which method you choose – slow cooker, skillet or pressure cooker – entirely depends on the amount of time you have available and when you have that time.  If you have a few minutes to load the slow cooker in the morning, but need dinner done as soon as you walk in the door, then that’s the best method for you.  On the other hand, if you have 35 minutes to wait on dinner to cook in the evening, the pressure cooker is the way to go.

15 Minute Skillet Chicken Curry with Peach Chutney

Skillet Chicken Curry with Peach Chutney

 

When I got the idea to make Peach Chutney in the slow cooker, it was on a morning I was in the mood to create something.  I started the chutney, spray painted a giant fork and spoon to hang in the kitchen, and started painting an end table.

While all of that was happening, I pondered lunch.  I knew it needed to be quick.  And I wanted to use the chutney as part of the recipe.

This Skillet Chicken Curry is the result.  I had leftover rotisserie chicken in the fridge, so that made the recipe really easy.  If you don’t have chicken already cooked, you can use this Basic Chicken Skillet method to get this dish started.

I altered this recipe from Slow Cooker Chicken Curry.  Instead of coconut milk, I used the chutney to balance the spices in the dish. It turned out wonderful.  Everyone loved it!
