I've been taking my lunch to work lately to save money and take control of my diet just a little. This recipe made 4 hearty lunches with a good balance of protein, carbs and veggies - and it took only about an hour start to finish.

How to Make Quick Coconut Curry Chicken


  1. Coarsly chop the onions and garlic. Toss them along with the raw peanuts into a stew pot and saute lightly with a little oil or cooking spray.
  2. Cut the chicken into large chunks and season with salt & pepper. (I was lazy & just threw the whole frozen breasts in there - it worked fine). Saute the chicken lightly in the stew pot with the onions, garlic & peanuts.
  3. Pour in coconut milk + 1 1/2 cans water. Use coconut milk that has the thick cream on top when you open the can. Blended, it should be the consistency of cow's milk.
  4. Chop the potatoes & carrots into large chunks & add to pot. (I love potatoes, so I used a huge white boiling potato in this.)
  5. Add chicken stock paste, green curry paste, ginger coins, thai seasoning blend & Sambal chile sauce. Stir to blend seasonings & simmer with the lid on about 40 minutes. Check seasonings & adjust to taste. The liquid should be a soupy opaque broth and just cover the solids. Add a little water or chicken stock if it's too thick & bring just back to a boil, then back to simmer.
  6. Stir in the rest of the vegetables & simmer another 10 minutes or so until the newly added veggies are done to your liking. I like the sugar snap peas tender crisp, so about 10 minutes does it. Serve over rice.
