PALEO & WHOLE30 CURRY GARLIC CHICKEN LEGS

PALEO & WHOLE30 CURRY GARLIC SKINLESS THIGHS/LEGS

Before beginning and now during my PALEO & WHOLE30 journey, I continue to LOVE all kinds of curries.  I don’t cook with this spice as often as I like.  Curry odor can stink up the house.  Shawn doesn’t mind the lingering scent of curry.  I despise it. I’m also super sensitive to smells, which is no doubt the reason why I loved being a wine journalist for many years.  My girlfriends call me a scent puppy and often use my smelling abilities to help them detect scents in the house like mold! If I walk into a house and say there is mold…well, there is always mold.  Back to the curry.  I love this recipe because the fat is removed from the chicken.  No sauces or extra fats are added.  It’s just skinless legs with curry spice, salt, and pepper.  A healthy way to enjoy dark poultry. 

 

RECIPE NUTRITIONAL VALUE:  Curry powder is a mixture of spices with a bright golden colour.  It is made with spices, such as turmeric, coriander, cumin, fenugreek, and sometimes chili powder.  Small producers can sometimes add ginger, mustard seeds, curry leaves, fennel seeds, and black pepper.  Due to its combination of spices, such as turmeric, curry powder has anti-inflammatory power.  The spice also boosts blood flow and improves blood vessel function, which aids in decreasing heart disease. Some medical experts believe curry powder also possesses anti-cancer properties and antioxidants that curb free radicals. Suffice to say curry powder is super beneficial to your health. 

 

RECIPE TASTE PROFILE: The predominant taste sensation in this dish is spiciness due to the curry powder with heavy garlic.  Some saltiness.

DIRTY-BIRDY WINE PARTNER (FOR THOSE MAINTAINING A PALEO OR WHOLE30 LIFESTYLE):  Spicy foods always require a wine with some sweetness to offset the heat and spice.  While this dish is not “hot” per se, it’s still spicy.  Choose an off-dry white wine with a hint of sweetness to counteract the spice and bring a bridge of harmony to the partnership.  Off-dry Gewurztraminer is ideal.  

 

RECIPE:

Chop garlic and let sit out for about 15 minutes.

 

Set chicken in an oven-proof pan. Sprinkle with curry powder, chopped garlic, salt, and pepper. Bake at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes.

Ingredients

4 chicken legs (skin removed)

3 cloves garlic

2 tablespoons curry powder

Sea salt to taste

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Finely chop garlic.  Let chopped garlic sit out on cutting board for about 15 minutes.  This triggers an enzyme reaction boosting the garlic’s allicin.  Allicin is a powerful nutrient that fights cancers.  Place skinless chicken in an oven-proof baking dish.  Sprinkle curry powder, garlic, salt, and pepper on chicken.  Bake for about 50 to 60 minutes until chicken is cooked.  Halfway through the baking process, baste the chicken with its own pan juice. Serve hot.

 

Notes

Note: You can add a touch of oil to the chicken before adding the spice if desired.

The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate.  Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that.  The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven.  The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition.  This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler.  So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven.  Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
