Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 lb chicken breasts cut into cubes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1 medium carrot peeled and cut into coins or finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 red pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 - 14 oz can of full fat coconut milk

Serve with

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice, white rice or cauliflower rice

Instructions

  • In a medium pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until tender, roughly 4 minutes.
  • Add in cubed chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes until browned, stirring often. The chicken will not be done at this point.
  • Add in the tomato paste, curry powder and ginger, and stir for 1 minute, coating the chicken.
  • Add in the carrots, peas, red peppers and coconut milk and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly and serve over brown rice.

Notes

Age: can serve 1 year and up. For toddlers, make sure to cut the veggies and chicken to small bite size pieces. 
Rice Options: feel free to use brown rice, white rice or cauliflower rice in the recipe. Thin rice noodles would also be a fun addition to this meal. 
Veggie Options: you can use which ever veggies your family prefers in this recipe - broccoli, cauliflower, snap peas, edamame, zucchini, sweet potatoes, etc. 
Family Dinner: if making this for the whole family, I would double (or triple) this recipe so you have enough for the entire family and some leftovers.
