One-Point Pumpkin Chicken Curry

(Last Updated On: December 7, 2020)

This curry is a delicious and spicy blend of Indian flavors of curry and coriander. Usually, curry is prepared with heavy cream. Our One-Point Pumpkin Chicken Curry substitutes light coconut milk for cream. The recipe uses diced tomatoes, chicken breast, curry powder, cinnamon, coriander, and garlic. You can make this recipe in the slow cooker or pressure cooker. If you use the pressure cooker, add 1/2 cup of water or broth.

Serve the curry with brown or cauliflower rice (or traditional naan bread). Check out our other low-point Indian dishes: One-Point Chicken Tikka Masala and Two-Point Butter Chicken.
