  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red pepper stem and seeds removed, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons yellow curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon + ½ teaspoon red curry paste
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 cup whole roasted cashews

Instructions

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat add olive oil and cubed chicken. Cook over heat and toss chicken often to cook on every side. Cook until chicken is cooked all the way through, 10-12 minutes. The cooking time will vary on how large you cut your cubes, so be sure to check a few pieces of the chicken to make it is cooked through the center.
  • Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  • In a medium sauce pan, add coconut milk, chicken broth, and curry powder, curry paste, cumin and salt, stir together. Then remove 1/2 cup of the mixture from the pan and add in cornstarch, whisk together the liquid and the cornstarch until it is well combined. Pour back in the sauce mixture.
  • Cook sauce over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Then cook for another 5 minutes, stirring continuously while it cooks. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes, add red peppers at this time.
  • Add in chicken and cashews, let it sit for a few minutes over low heat while you chop up the cilantro.
  • Remove from heat and serve over rice.
