Recipe: Curry Chicken with Toast Box Asian Delights

To commemorate Singapore's 50th year, Toast Box has recently launched their Asian Delights ready-to-cook paste, which features the nation's all-time favourite: Curry Chicken, Mee Rebus, Mee Siam, and Laksa. 


These little packet of babies are good for 2-3 persons, and contain no artificial trans fats and coloring. The best thing is that only a little preparation is needed to whip up an impressive meal for your family and friends.


For myself, curry chicken tops the list of my favourite food, and thus, I have particular high standards for this dish. The curry gravy is the star of the dish, and Toast Box's rendition was wonderful. In fact, a seasoned chef like my mother seconded the high standards, despite not having to make the gravy from scratch.

1. Season chicken pieces with curry chicken paste and let it sit for 20-30 minutes.

2. Boil the potatoes for about 5 minutes in a pot. Pat dry, and fry it over medium-high heat in a pan.

3. Remove the potatoes from the pan, and let it sit on a kitchen paper to absorb the oil.

4. Stir-fry the seasoned chicken pieces for 1 minute. Add  200ml of water. Bring it to boil and simmer for 13 minutes

5. Add the fried potatoes and coconut milk

6. Garnish with curry leaves, and serve alongside baguette or white rice.
