simple coconut chicken curry

INGREDIENTS
  1. 2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast cut into small bite size pieces, about 1
  2. 1 tablespoon curry powder
  3. 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  4. 2 pieces heads broccoli separated into bit size
  5. 2 cloves garlic minced
  6. 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  7. 1 can coconut milk (I used regular but lite works great)
  8. 3 tablespoons red curry paste
  9. ½ tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons cold water

INSTRUCTIONS
  • In a medium size pan over medium-high heat add peanut peanut oil. Toss the chicken with the curry powder and saute until cooked, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan add more oil if needed and saute the broccoli, garlic and ginger. After a few minutes, add the coconut milk and let simmer for 5-8 minutes. The broccoli should soften but still be tender-crisp.Add the curry paste to the pan and stir it until it combines with the coconut milk. Slide back in the chicken and any juices. Bring to a slight boil and add the cornstarch. Boil for about a minute, then reduce heat and let cool slightly (about another 2 to three minutes). Sauce will thicken as the mixture cools. Watch it closely, you do not want it to get to thick!
