Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk

Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk
Recipe By: Bahar

About this Recipe:

BaharBahar: Tasty and delicious curry. Not too spicy, but spicy enough to taste like a true curry. An easy dish that you can cook in only about half an hour. I found the recipe on food-network Canada when I was looking for a recipe that uses coconut milk and doesn't need too many fancy ingredients, and there it was. Enjoy.

Main Ingredients:

Chicken breasts: 1 lb (skinless and boneless)
Frying Oil: 3 tbsp
Onion: 1 (large)
Garlic: 2 clove
Coconut milk: 1 cup
Yogurt: 1/2 cup
Fresh ginger: 1 tbsp (grated)
Curry powder: 2 tsp
Salt: 3/4 tsp
Pepper: 1/8 tsp
Coconut flakes: slivered almonds: to garnish
Cooked rice for 4 (to serve with)


1. Peel and chop the onion. Peel and finely dice the garlic cloves.

2. Rinse chicken; pat dry. Cut into 1-inch pieces

3. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add half of the chopped onion and saute until tender. Add chicken and saute about 5 minutes or until slightly browned. Transfer the chicken to a medium-size bowl.

4. Add remaining 1 tbsp of oil to the frying pan. Add the rest of the chopped onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is tender. Drain.

5. Add coconut milk, yogurt, grated ginger, curry powder, salt and pepper to the pan. Bring to a simmer. Add the chicken and simmer for about 10 minutes.

6. Transfer the curry to the serving bowl, garnish on top with slivered almonds and powdered coconut (optional). Serve with rice.

I've cooked this recipe countless times. PERFECT for university life, and easily the most delicious curry I've eaten lately. Plus it's gluten free! Sometimes I omit the yogurt and just use more coconut milk. Thank you for sharing!

This tasted great-- but there is over 50 grams of fat and 500+ calories in 1 cup of coconut milk! I use just low fat yogurt and add a little more coconut flakes-- not as yummy but keeps the fat and calories down.

I used light coconut cream, substituted 2% milk for the yogurt, and diced potatoes for the coconut flakes and slivered almonds. Next time I do this, I will add carrots. Thanks...:D

To kick up the flavor I added some chopped Jalapenos when serving.

If you are concerned about the saturated fat content in coconut milk, know that this saturated fat has been shown in many independent studies to be a good saturated fat, easily metabolized to give your body quick energy. Contrary to popular myth, it does not transform into bad cholesterol to clog up arteries. The principle fatty acid in coconut milk is lauric acid, which is found in breast milk.
