Friday night I made Braised Chicken with Potatoes and Massaman Curry. It was spicy and quite tasty! Unfortunately I messed up the curry sauce, I didn’t measure my oil and used too much, so it was quite oily. But it was still delicious. It took me 1 hour and 8 minutes, definitely not the 30-40 minutes Plated told me it would take. I think those are maybe the times of professional chefs? I’m getting better at chopping, but it still takes me a while. If I made this again, I’d measure the oil, as well as slice the chicken into bite size pieces for ease of eating. There was a bad piece of potato which I did not appreciate, but it was easy enough to cut out and not eat. I am so thankful that my husband insists on good knives. They aren’t cheap, but make my job much easier.
One thing that surprise me was the coconut milk. I actually HATE coconut with a passion, and was worried about this being in the recipe. Luckily it was overpowered by the other flavors and I couldn’t taste it at all. But look at it. It was all congealed and globby.
Here is the finished product, as you can see, it’s extra oily, which is totally my fault and should not be blamed on plated. It tasted really good, I really liked the heat the curry provided.
