  • Saucepan


  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 2 TBSP Unrefined Coconut Oil
  • 4 TBSP Watkins Organic Curry Powder
  • 2 TBSP Watkins Organic Garlic Powder
  • 4 boneless chicken breasts cubed
  • 1 tsp Watkins Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 2 tsp Watkins Pepper
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 cups cooked penne noodles
  • 1 cup peas frozen or fresh


Step 1

  • In a saucepan add butter and coconut oil along with garlic and curry powder. Stir until all is mixed together and melted.

Step 2

  • Chop chicken into small cubes and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add chicken to the saucepan and stir until cooked. Once cooked, add the cream. Simmer 15 min and set aside.

Step 3

  • In larger pot, cook 2 cups of penne noodles. Drain and add to the chicken and cream mixture. Stir to mix well and add peas. Let simmer and stir occasionally. If sauce gets soaked up, add more cream if necessary.


You can adjust the spice to suit your taste preferences. For a neat combination, add some honey to your dish! It cuts down the spice of the curry but still allows the flavour to come through. I find kids really like it this way if they are not curry-lovers!
If you have a mixed audience (some like it hot, some like it not!) then make the recipe as is and each person can add more curry and/or honey to their preference!
