Another recipe which really hit the spot for our family. The recipe doesn’t have to be precise, which is what I love about it. I originally discovered it from this website and added in some suggestions from the reviews and our personal preferences. Essentially, add more or less of particular spices based on what’s in the your kitchen and preferred by your palate. A nice touch of Indian and a healthy serving of vegetables and protein. Sooo good! We served ours in bowls for a hearty soup texture (however, you could easily serve with naan or rice if you fancy some extra carbs!).

One person adequately described the dish:

“This is a quick and easy curry stir-fry made with chicken, zucchini, red bell pepper and carrot. Coconut milk and curry paste make an irresistible sauce. No need to go out to eat, as this dish is ready in about 20 minutes!”

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into thin strips
  • 4 tablespoons of medium curry powder
  • 2 cups sliced zucchini (I used some that were frozen and tossed them right in!)
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced (I used about a cup’s worth from a frozen bag of yellow, green and red peppers)
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 onion, quartered then halved (I used this from a frozen bag)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can of coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (I used dried and it worked fine!)
  • 1/4 cup of minced frozen garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter (I used an all natural version that just contained peanuts)
  • 1/4 cup of cashews
  • salt and pepper to taste ( I added quite a bit of salt til it tasted like I liked it).

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces; cook and stir for about 3 minutes. Mix in the vegetables and seasonings. Cook and stir for a few minutes until juices are nearly evaporated if using frozen ones.
  2. Add the coconut milk and cashews pouring directly into the skillet. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat for 4 minutes. Right before serving, stir in the peanut butter and garlic and stir well.Ā  Salt and pepper to taste.
