10 Minute Chicken Korma

Ok this is obviously not made from scratch!

This is also made the way my husband likes it (with his favourite extra ingredient)!

However if you are like us and always (well mostly) wanting to make dinner in a hurry because there are so many other things we want to do, then you probably want some meals that are very QUICK and can be made in 10 minutes or less.

Even if you only want a 10 minute meal occasionally and you like Chicken Korma then this is for you.

Pre-cooked chicken (enough for 2 people)
Jar of Korma Sauce
3 tablespoons of desiccated coconut
3 tablespoons of icing sugar (powdered sugar)
1 bag of Microwaveable Rice ( we prefer Uncle Ben's Lemon & Rosemary)
1 small tin of pineapple rings (Fred's favourite extra ingredient!)

If you do not want 
extra coconut in your Korma 
to have it sweeter 
to include pineapple 
just ignore those parts and you can have it ready even quicker.

1.  Pour the contents of the jar of Korma Sauce into a pan over medium heat
2.  Cut up the chicken into the pan (I use scissors) and give a quick stir
3.  Add the coconut and give a quick stir
4.  Add the sugar and give a quick stir & turn up heat
5.  Place rice in Microwave to cook for 2 minutes (or whatever time the instructions state)
6.  Cut pineapple rings into pieces (again using the scissors), add to pan and give a quick stir
7.  Pour rice from bag on to two plates
8.  Quick stir again of all ingredients in the pan and then pour out on top of rice on the plates.

Of course while I'm doing most of the above, Fred cuts the pineapple, sets the table and pours out drinks.

Well it is more fun with a bit of help.

If you are like our grown up children (who do not live with us any more) then you are probably saying something like

"Oh no you can't make Korma like that!"  

While we just laugh and tuck in.


Nowhere in this blog post am I claiming that this is a healthy meal!

In our house we like to have meals we like and some of them are really healthy and some are not so healthy however the size of portion is not enormous.


  1. I've never had chicken korma before but I am so excited to try it! I'm pinning this to make for dinner sometime next week. You sold me at "10 minutes." Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

  2. May I ask what Korma is? What does it taste like? I've never heard of it.

    1. Hi Robin, Korma is an Indian meal and can be made with chicken or lamb. It basically refers to the thick creamy coconut sauce that the meat is in. One of the mildest Indian dishes.

  3. Sounds and looks delicious ~ Creative post for Q

    Happy Weekend to you,
    artmusedog and carol

    1. thanks Carol what's better than Q for Quick in this world of today.

  4. Anytime dinner can be on the table in 10 minutes, I'm all over it.

    1. Hubby is away with work (yet again) and so I made this in under 8 minutes - didn't need to add the pineapple!

  5. I've never heard of Korma, but I've led a sheltered life. :) Now I'm curious and I'm going to have to google.

    1. Have a look above for more on the korma

  6. I was eyeing the jars of Indian sauces in my grocery store the other day. Thanks for sharing with Small Victories Sunday Linkup. Pinning to our linkup board and hope you found some great posts to visit this week!

  7. I went and looked up Korma sauce. I wondered if it might be like curry because of your ingredients. Now that I know, I can tell your dish is yummilicious.

    1. It is one of the mildest Indian dishes which suits me fine as I can't eat anything too spicy

  8. A quick and easy recipe which is great for a week night when time is short to prepare a meal. Thanks for sharing with us at #AnythingGoes.
