Slightly sweet with a little heat, this easy Indian Spiced Weeknight Chicken is sure to please the pickiest member of your family.  With just a few basic ingredients, you can transform a plain chicken breast into a moist, succulent masterpiece in no time at all!

In our home, ketchup is ALWAYS present.  We use it regularly.  But, with everyone wanting to eat a little healthier these days, we made the switch to French’s Ketchup a few months back.  French’s uses real ingredients, which is something my vegetarian family members tend to favour, of course.  With real sugar, the best tomatoes, and no GMOs, high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, or artificial flavours and colours, French’s was the clear choice.

Oh, and for my family, living here in Canada, we are even more proud of using French’s Ketchup, because the tomatoes used in the product are locally grown right here in Ontario!  For those of you outside of Canada, here’s another cool thing that French’s is doing; it has partnered with Feeding America and is donating 10 million meals in 2017.  How great is that?

If you want to learn more about French’s, check out this link for nutritional information and even more great tasting recipes.  And, this link will provide you with even more!  I love how you can partner the ketchup with French’s mustard and those delicious crispy fried onions too!

And, just in case those links weren’t enough, check out this video

You can find French’s Ketchup in the condiments section of your local grocery store.  French’s Ketchup is available at most grocery stores, in fact, Walmart also stocks the product.  We purchase French’s Ketchup at Loblaws. 

I could go on and on about ketchup (ha!) but, let’s get back to this Indian Spiced Weeknight Chicken dish.  We all lead extremely busy lifestyles, so anything in my home that makes mealtime prep easier, faster, and delicious is a win. 

This chicken is super moist and so enjoyable.  And, truth be told, it literally takes about 5 minutes to get it prepared for the oven.  You come home from work or school, mix the sauce together, pour it over the chicken, and toss it in the oven.  No mess, no fuss, and all in about 30 minutes.  Steam some veggies to go with this chicken and you’ve got yourself a wholesome, healthy dinner.

Indian Spiced Weeknight Chicken not only promises great taste, but also less clean up.  For the sauce, you need only a measuring cup and a spoon.  For the chicken, you need only parchment paper and a baking sheet.  Could weeknights get any easier?  I think not, Dear Reader.  🙂

Even before this dish is ready to serve, it looks great.  Here’s a photo of what it should look like before you place the chicken in the oven.  Notice how thick the sauce is smeared onto each breast.

  1. Each brand of ketchup has its own unique taste and spice combination. It's easy to automatically reach for the brand you are used to without considering that there might be a tastier or healthier alternative. I appreciate learning about French's. As a blogger, I know it is so important to find brands you are proud to stand behind. The local sourcing (for you) and the ingredient list, are a convincing reason to give French's a try. Your photos and description are a MAJOR reason for me to give this chicken a try!! We love Indian spices. A weeknight dinner with all that flavor in so little time is a winner.
    1. Thank you, Wendy. I love a quick weeknight recipe, but it's got to taste great, otherwise, what's the point? And, yes, sometimes reading labels can be rather daunting, but with a little time and effort, we can all eat a little healthier.
    1. Thank you, Srivalli. I find that ketchup does have a sweet taste to it, but the sweetness is masked greatly with the addition of the curry.
  2. We are always looking for more chicken recipes. I swear that Hubby and I are growing pin feathers we eat chicken so often. And like your family, we are always wanting to make our dishes with great ingredients. I didn't know French's had this particular ketchup. I'll have to check it out at the store. I better make sure I have plenty of curry spice.
  3. Not only does this chicken look easy but it's bursting with flavor too. I had no idea the tomatoes used for French's were local to you in Canada, that is so cool. And I'll be honest, I've never tried French's! But I do really love that they use real ingredients. The next time I'm out, I'll reach for French's and come home and whip up this delightfully tasty Indian chicken!
  4. That's really great to know that French's has partnered with Feeding America and is helping so many people. And also good to hear that they only use real ingredients. I don't normally use a lot of ketchup but this is good information to know when trying to decide a brand. I don't eat chicken but this sauce you made looks sooo good. Bet it would taste great on other things as well :)
  5. Thanks for letting us know about the French's ketchup. I am definitely going to be looking for it next time I am grocery shopping. We are so used to the brand that we use, that I hardly look for anything different. Posts like this help me steer away from my comfort zone and make me try something new. 30 minutes for a weeknight dinner, yes in my house!
    1. Haha - sounds like our house, Erin. I always have a bottle in my pantry just waiting for the one in the fridge to run dry. Happens quite often, actually!
  6. I have never heard of French's catsup, but I'm all for Non-GMO and no HFCS. The closer to nature the better. Your recipe looks so easy - but still so beautiful! I'll be sharing this with my chicken-loving son!
  7. This is such a homerun for me :) & totally loving the combination of ketchup wit curry flavor. The recipe is so easy to put together, the chicken looks juicy and sauce looks absolutely perfect - This is definitely an amazing weeknight dinner. Bookmarking to try soon - Thanks for sharing!
    1. I would serve just some plain steamed veggies - probably broccoli, but rice would go very well with this too!
