Curry Chicken with Coconut milk



  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast (large dices)

  • 4 pieces of boneless chicken thighs (large dices)

  • 3/4 cup white onion (small dice)

  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (400 ML approximately)

  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions

  • 2 tablespoon chopped parsley

  • 1 tablespoon yellow curry

  • 3 gloves minced garlic

  • 2 teaspoon minced ginger

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream

  • ½ cup of diced fresh mushrooms

  • salt and black pepper

  • olive oil


    How to make it

    In a bowl add the chicken, the ginger, garlic, curry powder and the lemon juice. One nice pinch of salt, a small pinch of black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. About a tablespoon.

    Mix everything with your hand until fully incorporated. Then cover the bowl with plastic, put it in the refrigerator and let it stand for about 30 min.

    In a large pan or skillet ( I like to use a large skillet), heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oils add chicken and light brown it on one side, flip and light brown it on the other side. It would take about two min each side.

    After the chicken is nicely browned on both sides, stir in the chopped onion and fry for two min.

    Next add the mushrooms and continue to stir fry for another minute. Then stir in the coconut milk and tomato paste. Make sure the tomato paste is fully incorporated with other ingredients.

    Continue cocking for about three minutes than add the heavy cream and cook for another minute.

    Put it into a serving dish and garnish with the chopped scallions and parsley.
