Goof Proof Coconut Curry Chicken

Recipe by  

"So easy to make, yet so darn tasty. Guaranteed to please. Serve over steamed rice, or you can make a simple fried rice with any leftover coconut milk. Just pan fry with 2 eggs, mix in 4 cups cooked rice, then half cup coconut milk, and a pinch of salt."

I love Coconut Curry and this recipe is worth a try. There is a few things I added to make it more flavorful and spicey. Add 1 tsp minced ginger, 1 tsp chili powder, and 1/4 tsp cayenne powder. Also, include your favorite vegetables like bamboo shoots, green beans, or peas. You'll love this dish!

I thought it was missing a few things. Added some Curry Paste as well as curry powder. Also added brown sugar and ginger. Much better after the additions.

This dish is amazing!!!! Not hard to make and i added shrimp almost near the end of the simmering and served it with pitas.

I made this recipe tonight for 2 as it is only me that I am cooking for. I did everything the same as the recipe except for adding a few raisins and some ginger and brown sugar as someone below suggested. This is just wonderful and just what I wanted. I have a second thigh to take to work for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

It was good, it really helps to put ginger in this. I couldnt find chicken thighs (since I was shopping in a hurry!) so I used chicken breast instead.

Wow !!! yday was the first time I cooked for a group of 15 ppl and this recipe is what saved me. Very simple to put together and it did come out really tasty. I did reduce the amount of oil I used to make it a little more healthy and it came out just fine. Thankyou for this amazing recipe, I will surely make it again :-)
