Curried Coconut Chicken

Not sure if this dish is Indian or Caribbean … what I can say is it’s spicy, sweet and delicious, which is all you really need to know.

Okay, so this is what you’ll need

  • 2 lbs diced chicken
  • half large white onion, sliced
  • 1 can (14oz) of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 8oz (small can) of tomato sauce
  • 2-3 tbsp of curry powder (to taste)
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 clove minced garlic

Let’s do this!

g1-oil

Pour 2-3 tbsp of oil into a large skillet

g2-curry

Once the oil is hot (medium-high heat), add the curry powder

You’ll want to cook the curry powder for 2-3 minutes. The heat will activate much of the flavours

g3-onions

Next, add the onions

g4-stir1

Stir until well coated by the curry

g5-sizzle

Let those onions cook a while, until they are getting clear

g6-chicken

Add the chicken

Already smells amazing! Stir and cook until the chicken is mostly cooked through and the juices are running clear.

Now add the tomatoes

g8-stir2

Mix well

g9-sugar

Add the sugar

g10-sauce

A little extra tomato sauce

Don’t forget that garlic!

 

Now add the coconut milk. Don’t worry if the milk has separated and the cream is on top in a lump … once you mix it with the hot ingredients it will blend nicely

g15-simmer

Now let your curry simmer on the stove for 30-40 minutes.

While it’s simmering, prepare some rice. I like to use basmati rice for this.

Okay, ready to serve!

Place some rice in a bowl. Get a large spoon and spoon the curry over the rice.
