Chicken Vindaloo Recipe

With the Holiday Season in full swing life is BUSY – work parties, family gatherings, shopping, baking… the “To Do” list never seems to end!

It can be hard to find time to cook a nice family meal with all of the hustle and bustle of getting ready for Christmas. I love trying new foods, and serving dishes to guests that they likely would not have tried else where.  But with no time to cook it is easy to get stuck in the “frozen dinner” rut.

 Now this is not your “traditional” Christmas holiday recipe – it is one that is full of flavour, that smells amazing and will have your guests asking for more.  Plus you can make it head of time and just let it cook, so you are not tied down to the kitchen.

Having friends over for New Years Eve?  This would be an wonderful dish to serve for dinner with a side of rice and some samosas.  What dish am I talking about… Chicken Vindaloo – a savoury curry with a little bit of kick, and a hint of cumin – Delicious!

I headed out to Walmart to pick up the ingredients for this recipe.

Chicken Vindaloo (serves 4)

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, I picked up Maple Leaf Prime Chicken
2 Jars VH Vindaloo Sauce
1 -2 Peppers (I like to use red or orange for the colour)
2 Onions
2 cloves of Garlic, crushed
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Can Diced Tomatoes (798 mL)
1 – Chop Onions into thin slices, and cut up peppers.
2 – Cook Chicken – you can BBQ it like I did or just cook it in a frying pan, chop into bite size pieces.

3 – Cook the diced peppers, onions, and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.

4 – In a crock pot mix the chicken, peppers, onions, Vindaloo Sauce, and diced tomatoes.  Cook on low for 4+ hours, or on high for 2 hours.

5 – Serve the Delicious Chicken Vindaloo with a side of Naan, or other bread perfect for dipping.

  1. I have never heard of Chicken Vindaloo before. Now I have used plenty of VH sauces. I think I will be looking for it on the grocery shelves.

  2. Wow, I’ve thought about making this recipe at home. Thanks for making it seem easy. Or, somewhat easy for beginners.
