Curry Chicken and CabbageMy husband doesn't normally like curry, but the curry flavor in this dish is pretty mild and he raved about it. I paired it with curry cabbage making for a very light and filling dinner.


Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4

Source: Weight Watchers and my mom


  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder (or Garam Marsala)
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • fresh cilantro leaves (optional)
  • 2 cups hot cooked brown or yellow rice
  • Curry Cabbage
  • 1 head cabbage, sliced
  • 3 cups chicken broth (remainder of container)
  • 2 Tbsp curry


  1. With side of large knife, mash garlic with salt on cutting board until it forms a paste.

  5. Add garlic paste, ginger and curry; and stir. (At this point the recipe says to remove onion mixture from pan before continuing, but I did not).

  13. Plate chicken over rice, spoon 1/4 cup sauce over chicken and sprinkle with cilantro if desired.
  14. I served with curry cabbage which I make by boiling a head of sliced cabbage in 3 cups chicken broth (remainder of container) and 2 Tbsp. curry until cooked through. It will turn a great neon color, which I thought was so cool when my mom would make curried cabbage and chicken when I was a kid!
