Healthy Curry Chicken Recipe
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound chicken breast fillets, cut into 1 inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • ½ tablespoon cayenne pepper (less if you like less “heat”, or more if you like a lot of spice!)
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup coconut milk -or- heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • Optional: frozen peas and/or carrots, roasted broccoli
  1. Heat butter in a heavy casserole over medium-high heat until foam from butter subsides. Add chicken strips and cook in batches until browned, 5 minutes per batch.
  2. Add spices, onions, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Add hot water and coconut milk and bring to a boil. Add vegetables.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer chicken and sauce to a serving plate. Garnish with cilantro. Serve over brown rice.
