  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes, or until fragrant.

  3. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.

  4. In a small bowl, mix together the curry powder, cumin, coriander, turmeric, and cayenne pepper. Add the spice mixture to the pan and stir to coat the chicken and onions.

  5. Pour in the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and coconut milk. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.

  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Serve the spicy chicken curry hot, garnished with fresh cilantro. Enjoy with rice, naan bread, or your favorite side dish.
