Exact Ingredients (+ Possible Substitutes)

For a special Coconut Curry Chicken, you need essential ingredients for coconut curry. First, dice onions, bell peppers, and garlic for flavor. Then, add chicken breasts for protein. To make it taste great, mix curry powder and ginger.

If curry powder is not in your pantry, use garam masala or cumin and turmeric. These are good curry powder substitutes.

For a creamy dish, use full-fat coconut milk. But, if you want a different consistency, try coconut cream. Don’t forget to add salt, pepper, and lime juice for taste. Fresh cilantro makes a great topping for freshness.

Choose your base. It can be white rice or cauliflower rice for a lower-carb option. Use olive oil or coconut oil for cooking. To make it less spicy, add less curry powder.

  • Mild spiciness: Reduce the curry powder
  • Spicy: Add more curry powder


To make your tasty coconut curry chicken, start by heating a big pan. Put a bit of olive oil in and cook a diced onion and red pepper until soft, for about 5 minutes. Then, toss in some garlic and cook for one more minute. Next, add cubed chicken and cook until no longer pink inside.

Now add the special spices. Put in two tablespoons of curry powder and a teaspoon of ground ginger. Stir everything well. Then, add a can of coconut milk and let it simmer gently. Toss in some lime juice and mix well.

Let the curry simmer for at least 10 minutes. This makes the flavors mix and the sauce a little thicker. Finally, top it with chopped cilantro. Serve over rice to enjoy the amazing flavors. It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish for a delicious meal.
