Easy Chicken Curry


  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 cups thickly julienned potatoes
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp chili paste
  • 1 can (12-14 oz) unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 can Rotel diced tomatoes with green chiles, drained
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Coconut Rice
  • 2 cups Jasmine rice
  • 1 can (12-14 oz) coconut cream
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Start the coconut rice by adding the rice, coconut cream, water and salt to a large saucepan or stockpot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover with a lid for 15-20 minutes. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the onion and salt and continue cooking for about 5 more minutes. Add the curry powder and cook for one minute more.
  2. Stir in the coconut milk, tomatoes, and tomato paste. Continue cooking the mixture, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until the sauce thickens slightly.
  3. Add the chicken, stir well, and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the meat is cooked through. Add more salt to taste.
  4. Serve warm, over coconut rice. Makes 4 large servings, or 5-6 smaller servings.
