Chinese chicken curry (mayflower)

I swear to god this is possibly the easier Chinese curry you will ever make with a good ole bit of cheating but it tastes absolutely amazing and I think it’s a thousand time nice then a chinese take away!!


  • Chicken breasts (enough for the amount of diners)
  • 2-3 Large white Onions
  • Half punnet of chestnut Mushrooms
  • 1 cup Garden peas
  • 1 tub of mayflower curry powder (medium 🌶 heat)
  • Finely chopped Garlic


First I chop my onions up quick large slices, chop the mushroom into 3 quarters. Not too big but big enough so they don’t just disappear when cooking.

I often use frozen peas so at this point I’d put them in hot boiling water to defrost them.

Dice the chicken breast

Now slowly cook the onions on a low to medium heat in a frying pan, when softened add the mushrooms and the peas and keep slowly frying until they are cooked through.

While these are frying take a large pan and add the chicken breast. Pour over a kettle of boiling water and boil the chicken until cooked through. Not too long though as chicken cooks quickest when it’s being boiled and you don’t want to over do it and dry it out.

Once the chicken is cooked, add it to the pan of cooked onions, peas and mushroom and toss in the pan on a low heat with a clove of chopped garlic. Turn the heat down and grab a large saucepan (I use chip pan size)

Fill it 3/4 quarters with warm tap water, when it’s back on the stove over a high heat add in 3/4 quarters of the mayflower powder from the plastic box. (Seems a lot but you want it nice and thick)

Keep stirring with a whisk over and over on a high heat until the water start to boil up and the watery mixture turn i so the most beautiful thick sauce. (If it’s too thick for you, just add a little more water until it’s the preferred consistency.)

As soon as it’s perfect for you then pour the boiling curry sauce over the chicken mixture in the other pan. Give it a good stir up and let all them flavour absorb into each other.

Now it’s ready!!!

I normally serve ours with turkish style rice (I don’t like rice cooked any other way) but you can have it however you desire. (If using the turkish method – see rice blog – remember the oil will need to be sinned)

Go grab a bottle of wine and massive glass, sit down and enjoy this amazing meal!!! I promise it will become a meal you just have to cook at least once a week 😍
