Recipe by Trail Girl

This recipe is from my first trail cookbook 'Freezer Bag Cooking: Trail Food Made Simple'. (by Sarah Kirkconnell) It can be prepared FBC style in a quart freezer bag or done one pot style in your hikers cook set. I will give directions for both ways. You can tone down the curry by all means - or add more ;-) Pack the peanuts and coconut in small zip top bags. For the chicken be sure it has a pop-top for easy opening.
