"Curried chicken simmered in coconut milk and tomatoes makes for a mouthwatering hint of the tropics! Goes great with rice and vegetables."

I loved this one. Made with 2 14.5oz cans of plum tomatoes instead of the stewed tomatoes and tomato sauce. I pureed the tomatoes with the hand blender before adding to the chicken. At first the sauce seemed very sweet, but I thought I'd let it reduce before tweaking, which was a good call - as the sauce reduced, the cayenne in my curry seasoning really came out. Definitelly a keeper!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut chicken into 1/2 inch chunks and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil and curry powder in a large skillet over medium-high heat for two minutes. Stir in onions and garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Add chicken, tossing lightly to coat with curry oil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in center and juices run clear.
  3. Pour coconut milk, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and sugar into the pan, and stir to combine. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, approximately 30 to 40 minutes.
