Yellow Curry Chicken

Curry chicken was a staple growing up. Besides its spicy comfort, especially with potatoes over rice, ga-lee gai makes the perfect at-home leftovers for enjoying the whole week. In fact, I suggest waiting at least a day for the flavors to soak in before making fresh rice. So when the Golden State Warriors won their first NBA title in 40 years, with star player Steph Curry, it was time to share the recipe. This dish is paired with blue margaritas to also honor the team’s colors, and add sweet and sour to an already complex mix of flavors. This also goes well with darker beers to draw out the richness.

Ingredients

* One whole chicken (or enough parts to serve four to five people)

* Three onions

* Six to eight potatoes

* Six to eight carrots

* One-half to three-quarters cup curry powder

* Two habaneros or other peppers

* Three-quarter teaspoon salt, or to taste

* Water

Directions

Cut chicken into parts and chop onions. Heat pot with some oil and put in onions. Put in chicken. Peel carrots and potatoes. Cut into pieces, chop peppers and put in pot. Add curry powder, salt and water. After 45 minutes the dish will be done, but I suggest letting it cool, even overnight, before reheating and making rice to put it over. It’ll let the flavors soak into the chicken and potatoes.

Blue Margaritas

Fill shaker with ice.
Add 2 oz. tequila, 1 oz. lime juice, 1 oz. blue curacao, 2 tsp. sugar.
Shake hard and pour into glass of choice.
