  • 1 lb boneless chicken breast or thigh meat cut in bite-sized chunks
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 ½ tbsp curry powder
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 14.5 oz can coconut milk
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
  • 2 cups water


  • On the stove top, add all of the ingredients to a pot over medium-low heat. Cook for 15 minutes, whisking occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through.
  • In another pot, heat 2 cups of water to boiling. Add the rice and stir. Cover with a lid and cook on a low simmer for approximately 18 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
  • Serve the curry over rice.


Add additional veggies, if desired, like potato, sweet potato chunks, sliced bell pepper, water chestnuts, or spinach.
