Step 1

In a medium-sized bowl make a seasoning paste by stirring together 2 tablespoons broth, 1 tablespoon curry powder, the thyme, and salt.

Stir in chicken until coated; let stand for 5 to 10 minutes.

In a 12-inch nonstick skillet or sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.

Add onion and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir flour into chicken mixture until evenly incorporated.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the chicken pieces and any remaining seasoning mixture to skillet.

Adjust heat so chicken sears and cooks rapidly but does not burn.

Cook, turning frequently, until browned on all sides, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Stir the remaining chicken broth, tomato sauce and 1 1/2 tablespoons more curry powder into skillet.

Lower heat; simmer gently. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes longer, until flavors blend and mixture cooks down a bit.

Taste and add more salt if desired. Spoon curry over hot rice and serve. Pass assorted curry garnishes at the table.
