Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 Pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 jalapeños, minced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons cilantro, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons minced ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons cumin
  • 1/8 Teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 1/4 Teaspoons ground coriander
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Cup coconut milk
  • Greek yogurt, for serving
  • Pita bread, warmed, for serving

Directions

In a large pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown. Stir in the onions and cook until lightly browned.

Stir in the jalapeños, garlic, cilantro, and ginger. Cook for 30 seconds. Add the turmeric, cumin, cayenne, and coriander. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Reduce the heat to low and add the coconut milk. Cook until the liquid has thickened. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt and pita bread.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
