Persian Lime Curry Chicken

Persian Lime Curry Chicken

Ever since our daughter, Luisa, was born, I've been on the lookout for quick but delicious weeknight meals. I still find it tough to do much dinner prep while she's running around the house, so I often don't start cooking until after she goes to bed around 8. 

Enter this Persian Lime Curry Chicken! I make this almost once a week. Loaded with pepper and ground Persian lime, this rub seriously makes chicken sing. It pairs well with rice and salad or roasted veggies.

Serves 4

Ingredients

1–2 tablespoons Persian Lime Curry Rub
Salt 
4 bone-in chicken thighs
2 tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup water
4 cloves garlic, minced

Directions

Sprinkle chicken with the Persian Lime Curry Rub and salt, making sure to coat both sides. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. When it’s hot, brown the chicken on both sides, about 6 minutes per side.

Add the water and garlic. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and braise for about 25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Oh my..this is way too easy to be so good ! Rather than add it in with the braising liquid, I sauteed the garlic in the oil and browned the chicken on top of the caramelized garlic . After I browned the chicken, I made sure the skin side faced up and carefully poured the braising water around the chicken to avoid washing the rub mixture off. The result was a crisper skin and darker color than in the photo. Bonus: the braising liquid reduces to a rich sauce for rice or potatoes.

I used half coconut milk- half water mixture, instead of all water. The dish was yummy!
