A plate of chicken curry over rice.This is one of the best meals I ever made! The combination of the coconut milk and the tomatoes made a wonderful sauce. Instead of spinach, I used Swiss chard from my garden.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4


  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tsp curry powder

  • 1 13 oz. can coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste

Ingredients for chicken curry.


  1. Sprinkle chicken with spices.
  2. Chopped chicken breast on a cutting board.
  3. In a large skillet, sauté chicken and onion in oil until chicken is no longer pink.
  4. Cooking the chicken in a frying pan.

I love to use Swiss chard or kale instead of spinach. It holds up a little better and doesn't get slimy if cooked too long.

I also love coconut milk so I'll definitely have to try this one.
