Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Cup chopped onions
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks lemongrass (or the rind of a lemon), cut into 3-inch pieces
  • 2 Teaspoons grated ginger
  • 2 Teaspoons plus 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ Teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1 13.66-ounce can light coconut milk
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2½ Cups boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • Salt
  • 1/3 Cup cilantro, chopped, loosely packed
  • 2/3 Cups cooked white rice (optional, for serving)
  • 1/3 Cup toasted coconut (optional garnish)

Directions

Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a 5-quart stockpot (or select the stovetop setting on your Ninja Cooking System). Add the onions, garlic, lemongrass, and ginger, and cook until the onions are translucent.

Stir in the curry powder, black pepper, red pepper flakes, coconut milk, and sugar.

Add the chicken pieces and cook until the chicken is completely cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the cilantro and stir until completely incorporated.

Serve over white rice, if desired, and garnish with the toasted coconut.

Coconut Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Coconut Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
