Pumpkin-Curry Chicken over Cashew Rice
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
This seemed REALLY bland until I figured out why - the recipe did not specify to drain the chicken. I think if I had, the flavor wouldn't have been so diluted. The flavor that WAS there was good. I'll try this again and drain the chicken to let the flavor shine through.
That looks AWESOME, Aysha! I may even try it for Thanksgiving. There are only two of us and I don't want to cook a huge turkey with all the trimmings.
Love this dish. So easy to prepare and yet the flavor blends nicely together. I used chicken thigh meat and it’s tender and moist and absorbs all the flavor. I halved the Five spice as we are not too crazy about it. This is a simple Asian style (Japanese?J curry that is slightly on the sweet side. Not the typical Thai style curry with complex flavors, but perfect for a simple weekday dinner!
This was so amazing. Perfect recipe to use up some leftover canned pumpkin, but also worth opening up a can of pumpkin for. I used golden raisins and I think they suited the recipe. I served with rice and a salad and it was a memorable dinner that I plan to make again. It needed some salt and I would sub chicken thighs next time and that is it. Please make this if you like curries, you won't regret it. I did about 1/3 hot curry powder and 2/3 mild to get the heat that I wanted. Just my two cents.
This is a family-favorite for us, and a great way to use of pumpkin when you have half a can left over from something else. My husband is allergic to cashews so we always use almonds in the rice.

I added half of and onion (sliced) and two stalks of celery (sliced) for some veggies and halved the raisins due to personal preference. I also used home-made apple butter. None of these choices affected how I rated the recipe though...We have had our fair share of curries from all parts of Asia and this was definitely over-spiced. If I were to make it again, I would reduce the black pepper by half and quarter the 5-spice. I used a madras curry powder blend (it's yellow) and I think 4 tsp of that was too much as well. The spices might temper out with the addition of a can of coconut milk, but by the time I thought of it, dinner was already over. You really want to make all the rice called for; specifically with the spice-heavy content of this.

First of all, it looks really gross on your plate! :) I guess I shouldn't have tried this plate because I don't think my husband and I are really fans of indian/thai food. The flavor wasn't really bad, but I don't like the chinese 5 spice powder and we just couldn't stomach this recipe. I think it was a combination of the looks and texture. I ended up throwing out the leftovers and we couldn't even finish our rice!
