Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, in batches if necessary, and cook, flipping once, until browned and cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

  • Remove pan from heat. Whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, coconut milk, brown sugar, curry paste and lime juice in the pan. Cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, 5 to 10 minutes. Serve the chicken with quinoa and the sauce, garnished with cilantro, if desired.


Tip: Red Thai curry paste's aromatic blend of lemongrass, ginger and chile peppers is in the middle of the road heat-wise--try green curry paste for more heat or yellow for less.
