Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk

by Olena

Simple Indian Chicken Curry with coconut milk and cauliflower is 30 minute healthy dinner recipe entire family will love. Rave reviews even from picky eaters and lots of leftovers to freeze.

In my world, curry is simple, heart healthy and delicious. I remember even my Ukrainian grandma used to make chicken curry. It is simply a combo of coconut milk, curry powder and ginger with any veggies or meat. I served it over brown rice but quinoa would be great too. Lots of leftovers you can freeze.

With a perfect balance of lean protein and vegetables, this chicken curry recipe can be made all vegan using extra cauliflower and served over brown rice or quinoa. Mild enough for the little ones. For my youngest son I diluted his portion with Greek yogurt to make it less spicy. Oldest one made it alive.:)

Enjoy!
