Ingredients

What ingredients do you need to cook Curry Chicken Pasta?

Chicken drumstick 

One of the best things with chicken and pasta is they are so easy to prep and surprisingly, they are extremely delicious. It has a unique flavor paired with its juices and texture. 

I love using chicken drumsticks because they are soft parts that you can easily turn into chunks. These only take a short time to cook yet they are truly loaded with amazing flavors.

My family also loves other chicken dishes like Crispy Chicken Wings, Gizzard Stew, and Roast Chicken!

Spaghetti pasta is a popular Italian dish you can use for many dishes. It is also cheap and easy to prepare. Moreover, you can pair it with different sauces and garnish!

The starch from the pasta also thickens the texture of the dish for the best experience. As long as you cook the pasta perfectly, you will love every bit of this pasta dish.

It’s my go-to kind of pasta for Spaghetti Bolognese and One-Pot Spaghetti Pasta!

Coconut milk 

Whenever you cook curry, you should try adding coconut milk, too. The coconut milk helps with a creamy and real curry quality. Furthermore, it has a nutty yet mildly sweet flavor that blends well with the spices.

It will make a huge difference in the dish, especially in texture and flavor. I also use coconut products for desiccated coconuts, Nigerian Egg Rolls, and Coconut Chin Chin!

Onion and garlic 

Onion and garlic will help improve the taste of the chicken. These also make the dish smell so much better. Whatever pasta sauce you’re cooking, you should always add aromatics like onion and garlic.

Oat flour 

I suggest mixing in some oat flour to thicken the curry sauce. You can use alternatives such as buckwheat or sourgum flour. The sauce will surely become thick, smooth, and extra creamy.

Coconut oil 

When it comes to cooking the sauce, I suggest using coconut oil to complement the curry and coconut milk. It can instantly upgrade the dish’s nutty taste. It is also a healthy oil for stir-fry recipes!

Seasoning 

Seasoning depends on you. But I suggest using mixed herbs, white pepper, cumin, cumin powder, curry powder, ginger powder, all-purpose seasoning, stock cube, garam masala, coriander, and sea salt.

How to Make Mixed Herbs

Mixed herbs are useful spices that you can use for rubs, sauces, and more! Combine basil, parsley, marjoram, oregano, sage, tarragon, and thyme to make this seasoning.

Store this in a jar to last up to a long time! You can use this for dishes such as Jollof Rice, Grilled Salmon, and Roast Chicken. Even this recipe’s spaghetti will taste better with mixed herbs!

How to Make Oat Flour

Making oat flour is easy.

  1. Blend rolled oats using a blender, food processor, or miller.
  2. Filter it using a fine mesh sieve for a finer texture. 

Oat flour can be used for pastry, dishes, and even drinks. It is also cheaper than oat flour! Store this in a container for several months.

Homemade Coconut Milk

Coconut milk is very easy to make at home. It’s one of the best ingredients to add to curry!

  1. Open the coconut and transfer the coconut water into a container.
  2. Then, scrape off the coconut meat and slice it into small pieces with a knife.
  3. Blend the coconut meat, coconut juice, and water until creamy.
  4. Filter the contents using a sieve or a nutmilk bag
  5. Thereafter, store coconut milk in a container.

Curry Chicken Pasta Variations

There are plenty of other ways to make Curry Chicken Pasta fun!

Use spaghetti alternatives like penne, ravioli, and more. Be sure to cook the pasta well to get the best texture from the chicken and pasta. If you have an alternative recipe for the chicken curry, then you can cook it for the pasta, too.

You can also make a vegetarian version of this recipe. Replace the chicken with peas, potatoes, mushrooms, or even bell peppers. Use cream, milk, or other sauce thickeners for the curry’s texture.

Make coconut milk at home or buy it from the grocery store. MJ and Hungryman also sugget adding broccoli and pumpkin to the dish. Although coconut milk is suggested, you may also opt for tomato puree instead. 

If you love curry, then I suggest making Chicken Curry or Curry Rice Noodles with Chicken!

  • Wok: Cook the Chicken Curry Spaghetti in a wok.
  • Pot: Prepare the pasta using a pot. 
  • Glass bowls: Marinate the chicken in a large glass bowl.
  • Knife: Use a knife to slice the ingredients (if needed).
  • Wooden spatula: Mix the curry sauce using a wooden spatula.
