Sam Zien has a new show on Discovery Health called "Just Cook This". I watched a preview show and saw him make this. It looked so good I went out and got the ingredients and made it for dinner the next day...yum!

I've been looking for a nice curry recipe and this is my favorite. I used curry paste instead of curry powder and added some basil otherwise following the recipe. It turned out very tasty. A bit spicy, but I like spicy food. Will make it again for sure.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim chicken of any extra fat. In a large bowl, combine coconut milk, cumin, curry, chili paste, lime zest and juice, mix well.
  2. Reserve about 1/3 of the sauce for after, but add the chicken to the rest. Mix well, cover and marinate—anywhere from 15 minutes to overnight.
  3. Heat bbq or grill pan and cook chicken on both side until cooked though—those cool grill marks are perfect here. While the chcken cooks, simmer the extra sauce in a small pot to thicken.
  4. Slice into strips, serve on top of rce with a little extra sauce and a sprinkle of cilantro.
