Units Scale

Thai curry chicken

  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/4 pounds chicken breasts (boneless and skinless, cut in 1/2 inch pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk

For serving


  1. Season the chicken: Combine salt, pepper, flour, and curry powder in a medium sized bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat.
  2. Cook the chicken: In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat add the olive oil. When it just begins to shimmer, add the seasoned chicken. Sauté for 5 minutes or until it begins to brown.

  5. Serve: Ladle the Thai chicken over bowls of hot jasmine rice. Sprinkle with cilantro and cashews. Serve with lime wedges.


  • Make sure the contents of the can of coconut milk is well combined by giving it a good shake before adding it to the pan.
