So, I had some drumsticks and although it is not my favourite part of the chicken, Indeed an easy and tasty meal out of them. Hence, the curry. Easy! You will have dinner on the table in no time with no fuss!


  • 8 chicken drumsticks (alternatively you can use thigh cutlets, skin on)
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons Keens Curry Powder
  • 1 Litre chicken stock
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups basmati rice
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil


1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.

2. Heat 1 tsp oil in a deep pan on medium heat and brown off the chicken so that all the skin is golden. This should take about 10 minutes. Set aside.

3. Add remaining oil and onion and cook until starting to soften, add curry powder and rice stirring for about 2  minutes then add chicken stock,  chicken and peas.

4. Cover pan and place in oven for 20 -30 minutes or until rice is set. ( you don’t need to do any stirring whilst the food is in the oven until serving).
