Quick Chicken Curry Bento

Hi there! Today I made a quick curry for bento, which goes great with rice or bread, and is perfect in a busy morning. I've probably posted the recipe before but I'll write again because it's so easy to make, and of course to write too haha!

Super quick chicken curry
1) Generously flour bite-sized pieces of chicken thigh.
2) Brown them in a frying pan.
3) Add a little water, curry powder, shoyu and tonkatsu sauce (or Worcestershire sauce), and keep cooking until the chicken is done and the liquid is thickened.

It's too easy, right? Since it is for bento, doesn't need much water to add. And of course you can add your favorite spices or herbs. If you want your curry healthier you can use chicken tender or breast instead. But don't forget to flour them, it's the key to the tenderness, and the thickness of the curry sauce.

    This looks really yummy!  Do you use a spicy (hot) curry powder or a sweeter one? And what is syoyu?

  3. I'm sorry I don't know about sweet curry powder, but you could use any type depending on your taste. I use Japanese curry powder. Shoyu is Japanese soy sauce. But they don't have to be Japanese products. You can use what you have on hand. :)

  4. OK it seems like I need to make a vegetarian version then. :D
    The white containers are enameled. You better not put food with tomato sauce (ketchup) or turmeric in white plastic boxes. It won't disappear.
