I love Asian-inspired meals. They are super flavorful and easy to make using mostly pantry essentials. So re-creating my favourite Asian meals is easier just like this Chicken and Broccoli Coconut Curry. I first had this when I visited a friend. This dish swept me off my feet and I just have to have the recipe! With eight ingredients and in thirty minutes, you’ll have this amazing dish on your dinner table. I have been making this since and I can tell you that this is way better than taking out!
4 c. broccoli florets
3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts – thinly sliced into strips
2 tbsp + 2 tsp yellow curry powder
1 tsp salt – more to taste
2 15-oz. cans of Thai coconut milk
juice of ½ lime – about 2 tsp
1 tsp sugar
fresh cilantro for garnish
How to make Chicken and Broccoli Coconut Curry
Step 1: Into a large skillet, drizzle the sesame oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken and broccoli to the skillet and saute for about 2 to 3 minutes over medium-high heat. Over the chicken and broccoli, sprinkle the curry powder and salt. Saute further until both are hardly cooked through. This takes another 7 to 8 minutes.
Step 2: Pour in the coconut milk and lime juice, then add in the sugar. Stir well until incorporated. Adjust the salt according to taste.
Step 3: Before serving, garnish with some fresh cilantro. Enjoy over rice.
For this recipe, I prefer using Thai canned coconut milk over the refrigerated or the ones you find in the baking section.
Using salt will bring out the curry flavour. Add salt as needed.
