Curried Chicken Sauté

Either you like curry or you don’t.  I didn’t use to and I admit it was because I didn’t like the smell.  I just assumed I wouldn’t like the spice until I tried it a few years ago.  Now, I crave Indian food and when I’m not sure what to eat, sometimes I’ll just have pasta and vegetables with a red curry sauce.  

This recipe for Curried Chicken Sauté seemed simple enough to make so I was eager to try it.  Chicken breasts are cooked with a simple rub of salt, pepper, and curry powder and then mixed with soft peppers and a creamy curry-coconut milk sauce.  This can either be eaten as a meal itself or over a little bit of rice.  The curry here isn’t overbearing and provides such a pleasant flavor to chicken and vegetables.  If you don’t want to try it, I won’t be offended.  But you never know, if you try it, you just might like it.

The ingredients:

Sprinkle curry powder, salt, and black pepper over chicken (I just put it on one side).

Cook the chicken breasts in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked.

Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.  In the same pan, sauté bell peppers and curry powder for 1 minute.

Add coconut milk and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for four minutes until slightly thickened.  Add in juice from half of a lime.

Cut chicken into thin slices and add to the peppers and sauce.
