Coconut Curry Chicken

This is a wonderful dish I began preparing for my family several months ago. I’m not a huge fan of curry, but this dish is very mild. It’s easy, thrifty and delicious! I prepare the meal earlier in the day up through step 2, and then put it in the crock pot so the meat can finish cooking and the flavors meld.

The original recipe can be found here, however, after making it several times, I’ve altered a few things. My version of the recipe, found below, is just as good and costs less to make! The dish serves 6 and costs only .63 a serving.

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch chunks (about 2 large breasts)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed, diced tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper, or to taste


  1. Assemble ingredients. You can purchase the Coconut Milk at Wal-Mart for $1.28. The curry seasoning I bought was also at Wal-Mart for $1.40.

Add chicken, tossing lightly to coat with curry oil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until chicken is mostly cooked through.
