Curry-and-Yogurt-Braised Chicken adapted from Grace Parisi of Food and Wine Magazine

Food and Wine's
Grace Parisi
         We love a good curry at our house.  It’s warming and satisfying on all levels.  This particular recipe is the product of that master chef at Food and Wine magazine, Grace Parisi.  What Grace has achieved here is a melding of flavors that would lead you to believe that the dish has been happily percolating on the stove for hours.  Actually, the whole thing takes a little over a half hour to make.  What you end up with is a creamy curry rich with the tang of Greek-style yogurt.  And Grace has blended in tomatoes, corn kernels, Serrano chile, ginger and curry powder for a truly flavorful dish.  Surprisingly, even with the addition of the Serrano chile, the curry comes off as mildly spicy with just enough heat to add interest.  I adapted this recipe slightly with some ideas I think are worth sharing.

Review of “Jamie’s Food Revolution” from Jamie Oliver and a recipe for a Quick and Easy Chicken Curry

The first post on Chewing the Fat was about Jamie Oliver’s Beef and Guinness Pie so if you’ve been with us for the whole ride, you know I am a huge fan of the man. I was very pleased to see his latest book show up under the Christmas tree (“Jamie’s Food Revolution”, Hyperion 2009 $26.25 at It is both a book and a crusade. The crusade is to counter some really pretty dreadful statistics about eating in America and in Jamie’s native Britain. Did you have any idea that fewer than a third of Americans cook their dinners from scratch these days? Or worse, that although 75 % of us eat most of our meals at home, over half of those dinners are fast food, delivery or takeout? Or even worse, that Americans spent more money on fast food in 2007 than they did on education? But Jamie has a plan.
