Creamy Chicken Curry with Annie's Goddess Dressing

Hi everyone, I hope you are doing good. Today I am here to share a new recipe. This recipe is a part of a campaign associated with Annie's and The feedfeed. Thank you @thefeedfeed, for giving me this opportunity. 

Annies is a very reputed brand in the USA for its organic products. Annie's makes delicious and nourishing foods that are good for the planet, too. From Salad dressings, mac & cheese, yogurt, cereal, soup snacks, and more! They always value honesty, transparency, yummy and wholesome, real organic ingredients, nothing artificial. Annie's began in 1989, it has been a part of the General Mills family for over four years but they have not compromised on a single thing - not their values, not the standards of their ingredients, and most certainly their mission.

As I said earlier post that I love to shop at co-op grocers.
Once you start buying the groceries from Co-Op grocers - you never go back
to the regular grocery stores. Co-OPs are community-owned businesses, they are
committed to the people they serve and the communities they live in. Owners
can have a voice in what is available for purchase, as well as in the overall
organization of their particular co-op. Owners get the most buying power for
their money, and profits stay in the community, contributing to its economic
strength. I have bought all the ingredients from the Co-Op called People’s
organic food market located in the Ocean Beach area in San Diego. There is a dressing promotion coming up at your local Co-Op grocer, don't miss it. 

Annie's Dressing Promotions at Local Co-ops:
○ Organic Dressings - 2/$6 (October 1st - 15th)

○ Regular Dressings - 2/$5 (October 1st - 15th)

Now coming to the recipe, It's a unique recipe featuring one of Annie’s organic dressings called Goddess. Actually, I am a big fan of Annie's Goddess dressing. It's creamy, lemony, and indescribably addictive. It is a very unique recipe, this recipe was born, when I had to use up the leftover goddess dressing that was sitting in my pantry for a long. Initially, I was a little skeptical about how it turned out. But I must say, it came out so yum, again I had to repeat the same recipe. Okay, I will not take more time, today is recipe is Creamy Chicken Curry with Annie's Goddess dressing. This delicious chicken curry will be perfect pair with rice, Pulao or butter naan.

1. Wash and pat dry the chicken pieces with a kitchen towel. 

2. The marination part: 
Take the chicken piece in a mixing bowl, add salt and pepper to it and mix it well. Then add the yogurt and Goddess dressing, mix it thoroughly. Let it rest for half an hour.

3. Take a big pan, add oil and heat it up. Once the oil is ready, add the green cardamoms, cinnamon stick and the cloves. 

4. Once the nice aroma comes up, add the chopped onion and saute the onion till it changes color to light brown. Add the ginger, garlic, and the green chili paste. Stir and cook it for a couple of minutes.

5. Lower the heat, and add the marinated chicken to the pan. Stir and let it cook over medium heat. 

6. Add salt and the remaining black pepper to the chicken. Add 2 tablespoons of Annie's Goddess dressing.

7. The chicken will start to release water and it will be cooked by its own. Stir it occasionally to prevent burning at the bottom.

8. Once the chicken pieces are well cooked, and oil starts to come out from all the sides of the pan, check the seasoning. Add salt and pepper, if it is required and turn off the gas.

9. Creamy Chicken Curry with Annie's Goddess dressing is ready. Serve hot with rice, Pulao or with butter naan.
