I never expected that curry flavoured chicken baked this way can be that awesome and I wouldn’t mind preparing it often. It is so easy to do yet the result is very satisfactory.
The curry is aromatic, the spiciness is acceptable , the flavor is good, the chicken meat is soft and juicy. Overall, it is awesome with rice, noodles or buns. I served it with steaming hot rice and a simple Indian Style Fried Cabbage. Hmmmm……yummy, yummy!

Hi Kimmy! So this is some sort of a baked dry style curry. Should be good from your description. I hope to try it soon!

Hi Phong Hong, I like it for its simplicity and good result. Reminds me of those marinated chicken pieces sold at the hypermarkets. I think it can be baked this way too. Really love the juicy moist chicken meat. Too excited to savour it immediately and no time to take some photos of the meat. We love our food 'hot'.

Hi Kimmy,
I do bake chicken wrapped in aluminium foil occasionally but have never thought of bake curry chicken with curry spices. Seeing you so enjoy this dish, I'm salivating ....

Kimmy said...

Hi Holy Food, do try and quite sure you will like this.

Hi Karen, we really enjoyed this baked chicken. The curry paste is thick and tasty. I especially like the tender, moist and juicy chicken meat.
