A friend of mine passed this recipe to me several years ago. It has been a family favorite ever since, especially with the kids.
- 1 TBSP coconut oil
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 can unsweetened coconut milk
- 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
- 2 TBSP tomato paste
- 1 pound chicken breasts or thighs. cut into 1 inch cubes
- 3 cups packed fresh baby spinach
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and the salt. Cook until softened, about 7 minutes, stirring often. Add the curry powder and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute.
Stir in the coconut milk, tomatoes, and tomato paste. Cook for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
Add the chicken, stir well, and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Stir in the spinach and cook for 3 minutes or until wilted, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt. Serve over steamed vegetables, rice, or by itself.
