Dinner will be a breeze with this easy Tamarind Chicken Recipe – even better, your kids will more than likely ask for it again, and again, and yet again for weeks to come.
This recipe can be on the table in less than 20 minutes from start to finish, as long as you have the chicken thawed out and ready to go. Serve the chicken over Turmeric Garlic Rice (made in your Instant Pot), regular white rice, noodles or even on it’s own – it’s a combination of sweet and saucy thanks to a delicious tamarind sauce that wraps around the chicken and thickens right before you serve.
What never started as an intentional recipe turned out to be rather incredible – we picked up Tamarind Paste on Amazon so we could avoid having to make our own Tamarind puree at home (which can be incredibly time consuming). The pouch has been wonderful for making all kinds of things, but never did we imagine it would be so good on our chicken!
Agua de Tamarindo is a delicious drink for hot, humid weather- use what you have left to make this delicious chicken. Double the recipe, and keep leftovers for work lunches for the remainder of the week. It’s a wonderful meal prep idea that will save you tons of time!
I am going to make this recipe over, and over again – not only because it was simply that amazing, but our oldest two licked every inch of the plate and came back asking for seconds. It’s so fun to see your kids love something you put your heart into – and this recipe was an incredible way to feed hungry bellies and make everyone very, very happy!
