Easy Coconut Curry Recipe

(makes 4 servings)


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes (or tofu, shrimp, etc.)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large Bok choy, sliced 
  • 1 red (or other color) bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 can light or regular coconut milk
  • 3 tsp. curry paste
  • 1 Tbsp. curry powder
  • Brown rice (I used 90 second)


1) In a large, deep pan or wok, cook the chicken (or tofu or shrimp) on medium heat in the olive oil and garlic for a few minutes.

2) Add the rest of the ingredients (except the rice) to the pan and mix it all around, then cover and heat on low for about 5 minutes (this will steam the veggies nicely & fully cook the chicken).

3) Serve on top of brown rice and enjoy!

    Coconut curry is one of my favorites! Thanks for sharing! Have you ever tried this sriracha sauce? It is preservative free and really good! Better than the rooster sauce.
