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

Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you for your AWESOME review! I'm SO delighted that you loved my Grandma's Spicy Chicken Curry seasoning kit and that it met your expectations. I will let my mom know that you loved her recipe. I'm sure she will be thrilled. Thank you SO much! Cheers Priya

Wow! So Tasty!

What a fantastic way to bring Indian Cuisine into my home. Priya, your Tikka Masala Seasoning packets leave me speechless! Thank you so much for taking the step to open this business offering these amazing tastes into everyone's home. Kept me going back for 2nd and 3rd helpings! Very dangerous for singles households. Once my four kits are all gone, I will absolutely be ordering four more! Thanks 10 times more! - Fred

Dear Frederick,
I absolutely loved your review. My family got a good chuckle out of it because we could relate to going back for 2nds and 3rd helpings of chicken tikka masala. I am so glad our seasonings brought you joy with this dish. Thank YOU for your awesome review. Cheers Priya

A fabulous dish!

I saw Priya profiled in a newspaper article and decided to try her recipe. It was wonderful - scrumptious flavors and very easy to follow. It makes a lot of sauce that can be used with other proteins and veggies - a dish that keeps on giving! So glad I gave it a try.

Hi Victoria,
I am absolutely thrilled that you loved my chicken tikka masala seasonings, recipe and tips to maximize the dish. Thank you SO much for your detailed and thoughtful review. We celebrated with a happy dance. Cheers Priya

Husband loved it!

I was taken by your ad that said I could adjust the spice level. I bought the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Butter Chicken mixes. I made the Tikka Masala for my husband, who cannot tolerate much heat, and made it without adding any jalapeño. He LOVED it. After dinner he came in and asked for a small bowl of rice with the sauce on it. He asked me to order more immediately! Thank you for making this spice mix so easily adaptable for people like my husband, who can’t enjoy spicy hot foods, but love the flavors of this dish. I think we are about to be regular customers! (PS—I enjoyed it as well!)

Hi Evelyn,
Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review. Oh my gosh!! I’m absolutely thrilled that your husband enjoyed the chicken tikka masala and that you did too.
It takes me 3-4 months to perfect a recipe and customize the spicy heat. So it’s fulfilling to know that I was able to help you make Indian food that you both loved.

Thank you for sharing your experience. It means a lot to me and my business.

Wonderful company!!

I read about this company in my local paper and was super excited to order some of the spice kits for my daughter’s birthday. She LOVES Indian food and makes it occasionally, but because the spice preparation can be daunting and ordering spices online can result in pounds of something you may not use in your lifetime, my daughter did not make her own very often. What a brilliant idea to sell spice packets for those of us who don’t want to buy a ton of exotic spices but want to cook our own Indian food! Oh - and the gift decoration was gorgeous. Very personal service. Highly recommend!

Hi Barbara,
Thank you SO much for your thoughtful and AWESOME review ! The reason I started this company was to make it easier to cook Indian food. I'm thrilled in particular that you are enjoying our unique home cooking in your home. I'm so glad you, your daughter and family loved our gift decorations. It truly was made with love from our family to yours. :-). Thanks again. Wishing you all the best. Cheers ~ Priya
