Coconut Curry Chicken
This week we travel to the city by the bay, San Francisco. This city is a world-class food city. This area is known for all of the wonderful ethnic neighborhoods. While Chinatown is the most prominent, many different nationalities are represented including Indian. This week I wanted to do something away from my norm and this recipe fits the bill. I have been tinkering with this recipe this year as me and my girlfriend have been trying to eat healthier. While some feel healthy does not include any flavor this recipe will prove that myth wrong. So pull up a chair and enjoy my Coconut Curry Chicken
- 1 ½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 yellow onion diced
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- ½ teaspoon Chinese 5-spice
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1-2lb head of cauliflower (cut into florets)
- 1 can coconut milk
- ½ cup chicken broth
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cooked white rice
Cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces. Season the chicken with salt and pepper evenly. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until the chicken is lightly browned (about 6-7 minutes). Remove the chicken and place on a plate for the time being.
Reduce the heat of the pan to medium-low. Now add the onion, garlic, curry powder, Chinese 5-spice, and ginger to the pan. Cook about 3 minutes to combine all the flavors and soften the onions. Next add the cauliflower, coconut milk, and chicken broth to the skillet. Cover the skillet and simmer for about 5-6 minutes. Make sure to stir the mixture occasionally. Finally add the chicken back to the skillet and stir the mixture to combine. Cook for about 5 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
To serve place some rice in a bowl and spoon the Coconut Curry Chicken over the rice. Enjoy and don’t feel guilty this entire recipe is under 500 calories per serving.
