So this is the most simple curry to make! I promise you will be in love once you make this!
- 4 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
- 1 tablespoon of ghee or butter or coconut oil
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 1 cup chicken broth or stock
- 3 diced carrots
- 3 sticks chopped celery
- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 1 onion chopped chunky
- 2 peppers chopped
- 3 tablespoons curry powder (I use masala)
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger
- 1 fresh chilli or 1tsp chilli flakes
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1tsp sea salt
- 2 tsp black pepper
Start by cooking the chicken in your chosen oil (I prefer Ghee for this) in a Large sized saucepan. Add your minced garlic and season the chicken with salt and pepper.
When the outside of the chicken has all turned white, add in the coconut milk and the chicken broth to the chicken and mix well.
Add in the onions, peppers, carrots, celery, and tomatoes into the pan. Also, add in the grated ginger (or powdered) and curry powder, I use 3 but if you feel you want more or less depending on spice then feel free to adjust to taste!
Pop the lid on the pan and leave on a low-medium heat for 50-60 minutes so that the flavours start to cook through. Give it a little stair every so often. Before serving add in the fresh chills and check your seasoning, add more if needed.
TIP – You can really use whatever veg you have in the house, i have used mushrooms and courgettes within this and it just adds a bit more depth (especially if you are eating Paleo it increases your carbs).
And another tip – if you like your curry thicker then add in 2 tbs of coconut flour and this will thicken up the consistency!
This is my Tuesday emergency working lunch. I added some baby corn and sugar snap peas.
I love this with nothing more than a bed of spinach and a spoon. CHICKEN COCONUT CURRY SOUP!? **Hearts in eyes**
You could also look to use cauliflower rice, (NO YOUR EYES ARE NOT DECEIVING YOU) you can make amazing rice with that smelly little vegetable thing believe it or now. I will write a blog on this soon as this is almost as versatile as them pesky sweet potatoes!
