Spicy 🌶 Ground Chicken

spicy ground chicken


As much as I like creating new Indian recipes, I love using a tried and true spice mix and using it in a fresh new way. I got the idea for using Grandma’s Spicy Chicken Curry seasoning mix on ground chicken from my facebook friend CaptGeorgeFetzer and his beautiful wife Sarah. George is a former restauranteur and makes amazing fusion recipes with our seasonings. George @geoscookincorner used our Chicken Tikka Masala with ground meat in one of his recipes. This gave me the idea for using ground chicken with Grandma's Spicy Chicken Curry seasonings. I started experimenting and made this yummy creation. I love that you don’t need to marinate the meat overnight for the spices to sink into the meat. This dish is quite quick and easy with yummy homemade taste. I do recommend topping the chicken with something crunchy like green onions, peanuts or croutons to give this dish a bit of crunch.

It got a thumb up from our Taster in Residence (our son 😂). It actually got him to enjoy eating a lettuce wrap. He topped it off with peanuts to get that extra crunch.

Spicy 🌶 Ground Chicken Recipe


Ground chicken: 2-3 lbs (using more meat makes the dish less spicy)

Olive oil: 3 Tablespoons

Onions: 1 cup, preferably purple

Jalapeño (optional): ½ thumb sized sized, diced, medium – spicy hot depending on amount of meat used.

Tomatoes: 1 ½ cups, diced

Grandma’s Spicy Chicken Curry Seasoning packet: Use BOTH packets at the same time!

Cilantro – ½ cup

Lemon juice (optional): 2 tsps, makes the sharp kick of spiciness much more smooth.

Chef’s Notes on customizing spicy heat:

  1. This dish IS on the SPICY side, as no yogurt is used in this recipe to temper down the spicy heat. (per recipe listed on the back label of the chicken curry seasoning kit).
  2. Feel free to OMIT the jalapeno
  3. Add a dollop of sour cream or yogurt to the dish after cooking if it’s too spicy hot.


  1. Brown chicken (optional to get rid of fat), drain and set aside.
  2. Wipe off pan and use it to cook the dish.
  3. Sauté onion in olive oil for 3-4 mins.
  4. Add Jalapeno and sauté for 3-4 mins.
  5. Add BOTH Step 1 and Step 2 seasoning packets from Grandma’s Spicy Chicken curry seasoning kit. Mix well & sauté spices for 1-2 mins so that spices stick to the onions.
  6. Add tomatoes and soften for 7-8 mins.
  7. Add browned chicken and cilantro.
  8. Add 1 cup water.
  9. Cover pan with lid and simmer for 20-25 mins till chicken is cooked.
  10. Add lemon juice.
  11. Serve with Naan, over salad, lettuce wraps or cauliflower rice for keto-friendly meal.

Suggested crunchy toppings:


Green onions

I am not a good cook and I don't like cooking.... but I enjoyed making the curry and it turned out delish! My guests were surprised. :)

Amazing Recipe

This chicken marinade is amazing! Marinate overnight is best and the chicken is crispy, moist, and so flavorful with just the right amount of heat! My whole family loves it - have only used chicken thighs, need to try with bone in, skin on chicken breast too!

Thank you Kim for this thoughtful and AWESOME review along with your gorgeous mouthwatering photos! I am SO delighted that you and your family love my chicken marinade seasoning kit. Good to know that the seasoning kit can used with both boneless vs. bone-in chicken thighs. Great tip! Thanks again for taking the time to write such a wonderful review ! I appreciate you !
