Chicken coconut curry

I have just got done making this amazing chicken coconut curry that was nothing but sensational and full of flavor. I know that curries are a very popular dish so I tried making this recipe quick and simple for those starting to venture into cooking, besides, we all know how busy most of us are nowadays.

For this chicken coconut curry I was able to use my new Circulon® 11″ French skillet. What a wonderful skillet to have. It is one of those pieces of kitchen equipment that would make your cooking a lot easier and more confortable when using.

Some characteristics of Circulon cookware are:

    • Circulon’s unique circle surface is combined with premium metal-utensil safe nonstick for superior performance that lasts
    • Heavy-duty hard-anodized construction is twice as hard as stainless steel
    • Dishwasher safe for convenience
    • Induction suitable = versatility for your kitchen today, tomorrow and in the future
    • Metal utensil safe nonstick on the pan interior and exterior = quick & easy to clean
    • Oven safe to 400°F

I think Circulon kitchen ware makes a great gift for newly engaged couples. Their products are solution oriented, innovative, effective and straight forward to use. A wedding means starting a new home with new essentials. Circulon can easily get her kitchen in order, and just like her marriage, their cookware will last a lifetime.

Retailers where you can register Circulon at – are Macy’s, Kohl’s and Target.

Onto the recipe. As you know, this recipe is very versatile. If you like you can use any type of protein. Using shrimp as well as extra-firm tofu will work for those that want to keep it vegetarian.

It also freezes rather well so if you are like me and like to make double the batch and save some for the future this is a great recipe to do that with. It comes really handy when you are super busy and don’t have time to prepare dinner.

You can also use quinoa in place or brown rice to serve this with or even Naan bread. I always have quinoa and brown rice in my pantry so I normally alternate between the two.
