Chicken Kheemo has become a favorite in our home within the last few years. It is so versatile that we use it for many different dishes. (MY FAVORITE IS THE CHICKEN KHEEMO DOSA). I prefer to use chicken instead of turkey because it seems to be more moist with chicken, but you are more than welcome to use whatever protein you choose. For quick meals, you can make this dish and refrigerate for up to 2 days and enjoy it as a meal prep. The following pictures show the cooking process.
VARIATIONS: Use this recipe to make-
- Frankies/Kati Rolls
- Meal Prep
- Indian Nachos
- Vegetarian option: Instead of chicken try Gardein Crumbles
A versatile clean eating recipe which can me made to last a few days! Perfect for those flaor craving meal prep days.
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 1 tbsp ginger
- 1 tbsp garlic
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 2 tbsp coriander powder
- 1-2 tbsp chicken masala-optional (this measurement depends on your spice level preference)
- 1 large finely chopped onion
- 1 large finely chopped tomato
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- red chili powder
- chopped cilantro
Heat pan on medium heat and add oil. Once hot add finely chopped onions and saute until golden brown.
Once the onions have slightly browned add the tomatoes, garlic, ginger, chicken masala, tomato paste, salt, coriander powder, some chopped cilantro (optional), and turmeric.
Allow the mixture to cook for about 3-5 minutes. At this point you can use a hand blender and puree the mixture if you would like. Then add the chicken. SIDE NOTE: I like to mix the ground chicken to remove the "stringed" meat look before cooking.
Using a spatula continue to mash and mix the chicken with the mixture. TIP: flatten/squeeze the meat at the bottom of the pan while mixing (or use a ground meat chopper). This will prevent the meat from bulking into large clumps.
Continue to mix frequently for an additional 7-10 minutes on medium heat.
Once all of the natural water has evaporated cook for a few additional minutes.
Garnish with the rest of the cilantro and serve.
