Coconut Chicken Curry

Updated on August 5, 2012

I love to cook but I am incredibly lazy. I hate complicated recipes with lots of ingredients. I love to feed my kids healthy homemade meals but the meals need to be fairly quick and simple. If not, I will cook the meal once and never attempt it again. I love coconut curry chicken. Often, I would visit my favorite local restaurant to get my fix.But I felt it was a dish that I could make at home. I would pay $7 per plate but I am incredible thrifty(cheap) as well as lazy. I wanted to find out if this was a dish I could make at around the same cost. After doing some research online, it seemed like an impossible feat. Most of the recipes have tons of ingredients. Many ingredients I didn't have in my own home. I tinkered here and there. After some experimentation I found a blend that suited me. A great combination of sweet and spicy.

      I agree with you, keep it simple! I love chicken and the idea of adding curry to this recipe is one I would enjoy.
