Caribbean Curry Chicken made with the Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™ ~ #NinjaDeliciousDoneEasy #NinjaPartner

The holidays are always a joyous occasion, however this year has been the exception. For the past couple of days I've been in a funk. For those who may not know, this is my 2nd year without both parents, and all I've been thinking about is heading to the Caribbean to sleep in the bed that I slept in for many years before migrating to the US. I want to experience Christmas on the islands one more time and eat authentic Caribbean food, especially a nice ole Caribbean Curry Chicken. After taking a look at airline prices, I came to the realization that it's not going to happen. So what do you do you're unable to make it "home"? You improvise! Thankfully my new Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ came to my rescue.

This post was created in partnership with Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™. I received complimentary products and compensation to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own.

Let me tell you about my Ninja Cooking System with Auto-iQ. If you don't currently own one, I suggest you get one ASAP. This is going to revolutionize the way you cook and prepare meals. Talk about a lifesaver. This is 4 appliances built right into one.

Here is what you can expect to receive.

A slow cooker: However, compared to traditional slow cookers that only heats from the side, you'll appreciate the fact that Ninja’s Triple Fusion Heat® brings bottom, side, and steam heat together for easy one-pot meals.

A stove top: Your cooking system has an innovative heating element that turns it into a skillet so you can sear meats and sauté vegetables in one pot.

A steamer: Now you can steam your veggies or even seafood perfectly!

An oven: You heard me right! An oven! You can control the temperature range from 250°–425°F allowing you to dry bake roasts, breads, cakes and so much more!

I have been experimenting with my multi cooker, and I call it a multi cooker because of all that it can do. Once you open your box and take out your Ninja Cooking System with Auto-iQ from it's packaging, you also receive a cookbook filled with recipes to guide you on your journey to cooking amazing meals that will shock and awe your family. With more than 80 pre-programmed recipes, all you have to do is select your recipe number, add your ingredients and let your Auto-iQ™ do the rest for you. There is also so much to choose from. Whether it's a layered bowl, quick meals, grains or poached infusions, the choice is yours.

I almost forgot to mention that your Ninja Cooking System with Auto-iQ comes with a 6-quart nonstick dishwasher-safe pot, glass lid with handle and a steaming/roasting rack. It also automatically keeps your food warm and has a programmable digital timer.

However, with that big of a pot I decided to put it to the test. In my recipe book on page 45, I noticed that there was a quick recipe for "Chicken Curry". It was very similar to our Caribbean Curry Chicken, but for a few ingredients, and of course if you're from the Caribbean and truly want authentic Caribbean Chicken Curry, then you need to also add potatoes. I also have a rather big family and I wanted to see if this would be able to handle what I dished out, and I have to say that it really did! I'm really impressed and it takes A LOT to impress me.

I'm going to share my authentic Caribbean Curry Chicken recipe with you and you too can make it in your Ninja Cooking System with Auto-iQ. It's a variation of the recipe found on page 45 in the cookbook.

Caribbean Curry Chicken


Family pack of drumsticks
1 onion, peeled and sliced
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
3 tablespoons curry powder
1 packet Goya sazon
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup full fat coconut milk
2 teaspoon salt
6 large potatoes peeled and thinly chopped
Ninja Cooking System with Auto-iQ


1. To get the real flavor of your curry on your chicken, it's best to season your chicken with the onion, garlic, curry powder and sazon preferably overnight.

2. Place all your ingredients into the pot. Stir to combine then cover pot.

3. Select Auto-IQ Quick Meals: Recipe 21 and press the START/STOP button.

4. Serve with white or brown rice.

I've uploaded a video showing my process that you can take a look at, but it's so simple that you don't even need it.

While I haven't tried all the functions as yet, you can be sure that I am going to. As a matter of fact my husband has already gone through the recipe book and has designated a few recipes that he insists I need to make, one of them being the Lobster Ravioli in Vodka Sauce. Doesn't that sound delish? You're going to love the Ninja Cooking System with Auto-iQ as much as I do!

  2. Wow! This curry chicken looks amazing! I never knew Ninja made a cooking system, just food processors!

  3. This looks delicious. I love curry chicken. I had no idea that Ninja made a cooking appliance I had only ever heard of their blenders and food processors. I think I'm going to have to look into getting one of these. The oven setting makes me excited.

  4. This!Wow!The Ninja Cooking system has touched my soul. I want this pot in my kitchen and I am definitely going to enter this competition.

    PS: I am sorry about how you are feeling especially that you cant even effort to go home. Hugs

  8. YUM!! I have never had curry chicken but this looks amazing. I must try this recipe and OMG that Ninja cooking system is the bomdiggty. I totally want one fro Christmas or any time really.

  9. That's amazing that the Ninja also acts as an oven. That really is multi-functioning. Over the years, I've had friends who've lived in very small apartments without a full kitchen. This would make a fantastic gift for someone like that.

  10. It's nice to make dishes when you miss home. It's almost like you're there. I hope you have a lovely Christmas this year with your family in the US. This recipe sounds so good, I really like simple ones with loads of flavor! We all need this Ninja Cooking system in our lives!

  12. I can't imagine Christmas without my dad. My mom passed away in 2007, and holidays are always hard. I couldn't imagine it without my dad too. This dish sounds so tasty!

  13. The Ninja sounds like a great product. I think the dinner looks amazing and I love your Christmas china!

  14. I never heard of this kitchen tool before but it sounds amazing! The dish you made with it looks absolutely delicious and looks ke something my family would love to eat! Shell

  23. Yum! Looking at this pictures is making me hungry.. I love curry chicken!

  24. Yum, this looks so delicious! I love anything with cranberry, will be giving this a try!

    That caribbean chicken looks so delicious! I want to try this and serve to my family on holidays.

  31. I have a Ninja blender that i just love. It came with extra smoothie cups which are so great in the morning. It seems like the brand is great at coming up with dual purpose products, and this cooking system sounds like another one of their fabulous must have tools.

  32. What a fantastic recipe, Annmarie & a wonderful gadget. Might look into getting myself a Ninja blender during post-Christmas sales :)

  33. Oh my gosh this looks like such a great recipe and very easy to make. I might have to check out more of this ninja blender. Thank you!

  34. Wait it also works as an oven?!?! I need this asap, I am all for easy cooking.
