“Spice from the curry and slightly sweet coconut milk combine to make a wonderfully tasty and tender chicken dish. Serve with basmati rice and a cool cucumber and tomato salad. I created this recipe after a small ethnic restaurant in our neighborhood closed. Their curry chicken and peanuts was wonderful. I was unable to find a similar recipe so through trial and error, this version was born!” - by LisaMB
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat until the butter is melted. Cook and stir the onions and 1 tablespoon of curry powder for about 5 minutes, to release the juice from the onions. Remove the onions with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the juice in the skillet.
- Place the chicken breast cubes into the skillet with the remaining 1 tablespoon of curry powder, and cook and stir about 15 minutes, until the chicken is browned and no longer pink inside. Return the onions to the skillet, and pour in the coconut milk. Simmer for about 15 minutes, until the sauce is thickened. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.

See moreice it up with spicier curry. But, as is, it made for a great, light, tasty dinner. The sauce was delicious, I felt like I was in a restaurant. Put it over a bed of jasmine rice and you'd have a great dinner. "
