Chicken Coconut Curry

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (163 votes)

At once comforting and exotic-tasting, this rich chicken coconut curry stew will warm you on chilly winter evenings. Chunks of potato, lean chicken and loads of veggies make it a meal in a bowl. Enjoy with a fruity white wine like Gewurztraminer or Chenin Blanc to tame the heat. Using “lite” coconut milk instead of full-fat in this healthy curried coconut chicken stew recipe trims roughly two-thirds the fat and calories without sacrificing flavor.

One of the easiest curry recipes I've stumbled on & I always go back to it. I add more salt, more curry, & more vegetables. It's always a hit, especially when you add you're own spin to it.

Easy to make
Best homemade curry I've tried yet

I followed some of the alterations suggested in other reviews, and the result was great! I just bought a pre cut bag of veggies from the store (bell peppers, onion, snap peas, broccoli) and omitted the potatoes and carrots.
I tend to like spicy food so added 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper. 2 teaspoons was almost too spicy for my taste, in the future i may just add 1.5 teaspoons.

Cooked with jasmine rice this dish was a real hit!

great for leftovers, easy to make

I looked at the reviews and followed some advise. I was generous with my hot curry measurements and added even more. I used double the amount of garlic it called for and replaced celery with some broccoli and cauliflower instead. I didn't have yukon gold potatoes but had something similar and left the peal on. I also used roast chicken from the night before. It was a fantastic and such an easy recipe to follow. I think it can be modified in so many different ways depending on what you have around. If you like flavourful food, I would suggest adding more curry and garlic than the recipe calls for. I will definitely be making this again!

Healthy, easy, flavourful

I am not usually a fan of curries like this but now I know it's because the ones you get as takeout are not nearly this fresh and tasty. I doubled the garlic and increased the ratio of vegetables to chicken without increasing the coconut milk. My husband loved it and he likes spicy food.

Easy, spicy, healthy

This was really good. I added a little cayenne for more spice.
