Chicken that tempts your tongue like candy. This is sweet with a bit of tang. It's light and deep at the same time. Everyone asks for the recipe - it's based on Kristi Martinez's Indian Curry Chicken I, but heavily adapted for sweet tooths! Works great for larger meals.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Slice chicken breast halves to half their original thickness; you should have 16 pieces.

  • Mix curry powder, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and garlic together in a small bowl to make the spice mixture.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chicken until browned on the outside and still pink on the inside, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place chicken on a plate.

  • Cook onions in the same skillet until they start becoming translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour spice mixture in and mix with the onions. Add cream of coconut and tomato sauce; add chicken. Reduce heat to low. Simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 20 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

Frozen ginger cubes can be used in place of fresh ginger.

You can also cut the chicken into strips.
